At Chew Magna Dental Practice we offer composite (or white) fillings. As well as providing an effective repair for tooth decay or damage, composite fillings are made from tooth-coloured resin, in a number of available shades which ensures they blend in beautifully with your teeth.
They support the structure of a damaged tooth, helping to prevent further breakage or sensitivity, and can be placed in the front or back teeth.
Composite fillings are an attractive option and are now produced from modern materials that offer improved durability, particularly in small cavities. We can remove old or failing silver coloured fillings and replace them with beautiful tooth-coloured composite fillings.
We first use local anaesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding area, then treat the tooth. Using a special gel, we prepare the surface where the filling will bond. This is washed away and we then apply a priming agent so we can achieve a strong bond to the filling.
The composite we use will be colour-matched to the tooth. This is applied in layers so we can gradually shape the filling. The resin is hardened under a special light and then polished so it looks exactly like a natural tooth.
To prevent decay forming around the composite filling, it is important to brush at least twice a day and see your dentist for regular check-ups.
