Composite fillings

Dental composite are types of synthetic resins that are used in dentistry as restorative material or adhesives.

Direct dental composites are placed by the dentist in a clinical setting. Polymerization of a composite fillings is accomplished typically with a hand held curing light that emits specific wavelengths keyed to the initiator and catalyst packages involved. When using a curing light, the light should be held as close to the resin surface as possible, a shield should be placed between the light tip and the operator’s eyes.

Advantages of white fillings:

  • A white filling can be matched to the colour of your surrounding tooth.
  • White fillings don’t have the health risk posed by the mercury in amalgam fillings.
  • Less post-treatment discomfort and sensitivity when using white composite fillings.
  • Preparation of cavities for composite fillings can be minimally invasive
  • In many cases of minor damage to a composite filling, the damage can be easily repaired by adding additional composite. An amalgam filling might require complete replacement.
  • A composite filling usually requires only one visit
