If you have a cavity or a damaged tooth, Dr. Sonny Afshar and Dr. Fara Afshar may recommend a composite dental filling. If a filling is necessary, our dentists will remove the decayed part of the tooth and then fill the tooth with the filling material. While gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, or composite resin materials can all be used to fill a tooth, we favor composite fillings for their numerous advantages.
Composite (Tooth-Colored) Fillings
Why We Exclusively Use Composite Fillings
Composite fillings, or tooth-colored fillings, are made to closely match the shade of your natural teeth. Because of this, they are especially useful for the front teeth and visible parts of your smile. Composite fillings are strong because they are chemically bonded to your tooth. Unlike other filling types, composite fillings can also be used to repair teeth that are chipped, worn, or broken. In many cases, less tooth structure needs to be removed to prepare for the filling than with amalgam fillings, which means that our patients spend less time in the chair and more time doing what they love.
Feel free to contact Star Dental today to learn more about composite fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our dentists. We are excited to serve you and your smile!
