Match Your Tooth Colour
Centennial Dental Centre team proudly practices in Hamilton, ON. We offer Composite Fillings as part of our restorative dental services. We have included a little more information about Composite Fillings so that you can decide which type of filling is best for your individual case. It’s important to note that Composite Fillings are amongst some of the most advanced in the dental industry as well as some of the most natural feeling fillings on the market today. We are proud to offer this type of filling and train to provide quality results through our restoration and reshaping process.
Composite Fillings are made up of a plastic and glass mixture. Its speciality mixed to mimic the true feeling of teeth and is made to match your exact tooth colour shade so that you end up with results that mimic the initial structure of your damaged tooth. Our experts will use Composite Resin to restore the shape of any decaying tooth that you might have.
The Installation Process
We will first clean around the area and prepare the tooth to accept the Composite Filling resin. This can involve shaving out certain sections of your teeth as well as removing any of the seriously decayed pieces of the tooth. We will then slowly start to build up the tooth structure again by applying the resin in layers. After the composite is fully built, we then polish the outside of the Composite Filling to prevent any initial staining from occurring and to stop any early wear on the filling. The polishing process also works to blend in the filling with your tooth to produce more aesthetically pleasing results.
Costs of This Process
Most dental insurance plans will cover the costs of Composite Fillings. If you have ever had a filling before and you know the initial price of silver fillings it’s important to note that you could pay twice the amount for this more aesthetically pleasing result. Composite Fillings are some of the best fillings available on the market and as a result, many insurance companies are including it in their policies because they last longer and hold up better.
Points to Consider
You may experience some slight sensitivity shortly after your fillings are installed. It’s also important to note that it’s a good idea to avoid staining foods and liquids like coffee or tea because they can quickly discolor Composite Fillings shortly after installation. You can care for teeth with Composite Fillings just the same way that you would with your natural teeth. Remember to brush and floss regularly to avoid future damage.
