What Are Composite Fillings?
Dental cavities are a common oral health issue that occurs when bacteria destroy the tooth's enamel. In the past, dental cavities were filled with a material called amalgam, a mixture of metals, like mercury or silver. We now know that these fillings don't adhere very well with teeth and that mercury may be harmful. At Creating Beautiful Smiles, our dentists offer tooth-colored fillings made with composite resin to fill cavities and protect your teeth. Our dentists can also remove metal fillings and replace them with tooth-colored fillings. For more information, contact our Racine, WI practice to schedule a consultation today.
What Can I Expect from Composite Fillings?
Getting a cavity fixed with composite resin at Creating Beautiful Smiles is an easy procedure. The area surrounding the cavity will be numbed to make sure you're not in any pain. Stronger forms of sedation can be discussed to keep you relaxed during the procedure. Once you're prepared, the decayed enamel is removed. After the enamel is treated and the area is cleaned, the space will be replaced with composite resin. It will be polished with composite resin so it matches your other teeth. You will be able to return to your regular day once your filling is done, but you might notice some sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages for a few days. You may take over-the-counter pain medication to minimize discomfort, but you should not experience any serious issues. Your filling should be kept clean by following a regular home care routine with daily brushing and flossing.
