Petaluma Family Dentistry is committed to helping you achieve your best smile – composite fillings are just one way to help. If you are interested in restoring your teeth or swapping from your traditional metal fillings, call today to schedule an appointment.
Composite filling is a tooth-colored, putty-like substance that is used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, or are cracked, chipped or fractured. This durable material is comprised of crushed quartz blended with a resin material, that when hardened can restore function and strength of the teeth. The unique chemical bond reduces the risk of fracture and can last for years. Its natural color and translucency allow the composite to blend easily with your natural teeth – no one will know that it’s there!
Petaluma Family Dentistry recommends composite filling material for a wide variety of reasons.
A composite filling is completed in a single visit. Dr. Navid will remove any decay or old fillings, and clean the area prior to placement.
She then places, shapes and polishes the material, assuring the best fit. Your composite filling is now bonded to the tooth, meaning you will not experience filling leaks and will have a lesser chance of the tooth cracking.
