At Esthetic Dentistry of Fairfax, we are committed to restoring the health and aesthetics of your smile with the latest advancements in dental care, including composite dental fillings. Our experienced dentist and team are dedicated to providing treatments that not only improve oral health but also enhance the natural beauty of your smile.

Understanding Composite Dental Fillings

Composite dental fillings, made from a tooth-colored resin material, offer a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for repairing cavities and tooth decay. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring that your smile remains bright and beautiful.

Our Composite Filling Procedure

Our approach to composite dental fillings involves a few key steps designed to ensure the best outcome for your dental health:

  • Thorough Examination: We begin with a comprehensive assessment to identify cavities or decay that require attention.
  • Preparation: The affected area of the tooth is meticulously prepared, removing decay while preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
  • Filling Application: The composite material is then applied in layers, with each layer hardened using a specialized light. This process ensures the filling bonds securely to the tooth.
  • Shaping and Polishing: Finally, the filling is shaped to match the contours of your tooth and polished to achieve a smooth, natural appearance.

Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings

Choosing composite dental fillings at our clinic provides numerous benefits:

  • Aesthetically Pleasing: Composite fillings are matched to the color of your natural teeth, maintaining the beauty of your smile.
  • Preservation of Tooth Structure: The bonding process for composite fillings requires less removal of healthy tooth material compared to other types of fillings.
  • Durability: Modern composite materials offer a strong and durable solution for restoring teeth.
  • Reduced Sensitivity: Composite fillings are less likely to cause sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures than metal fillings.
