Composite dental fillings are a popular and effective solution for repairing cavities and restoring the integrity of teeth. At DC Family Dental, we use high-quality composite materials to ensure a natural-looking and durable result. These fillings are an excellent choice for patients seeking both functional and aesthetic improvements.

Benefits of Composite Dental Fillings
Composite dental fillings offer several key benefits:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: The tooth-colored composite material blends seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing an aesthetically pleasing result.
  • Durability: Composite fillings are designed to withstand the daily pressures of chewing and speaking, ensuring long-lasting durability.
  • Minimal Invasive: The process involves removing less tooth structure compared to traditional fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Versatility: Composite materials can be used to repair decayed, chipped or worn teeth, making them a versatile option for various dental needs.

The Composite Filling Procedure
The composite filling procedure involves several steps to ensure a successful outcome:

  1. Preparation: Dr. Mayur Patel will numb the affected area to ensure a comfortable experience. The decayed portion of the tooth is then removed.
  2. Layering the Composite: The composite material is applied in layers, with each layer being cured or hardened using a special light.
  3. Shaping and Polishing: Once the filling is in place, our dentist will shape it to match the natural contours of your tooth and polish it for a smooth finish.
