Dental Fillings in Woodstock, GA

 Most people have at least one dental filling in their lifetime. A filling is a treatment to fix a tooth damaged by decay and restore it back to its original shape, appearance, and function. There are various materials that are used to fill a cavity. Some of the most popular and effective ones are composite dental fillings. 

Composite Fillings

A composite filling is a dental-grade material used to fill cavities and fix decay, thereby restoring the shape and strength of decayed or damaged teeth. They are widely popular for fixing cavities because they have a natural appearance and are unnoticeable.

The composite resin material typically includes multiple components, like fine glass and plastic, and offers an ideal, natural-looking alternative for conventional amalgam fillings.

Benefits of Composite Fillings

Composite dental fillings offer the following benefits:

  • Composite fillings are highly durable; they can last up to seven to ten years if they are well taken care of. 
  • They look natural on the teeth 
  • The procedure is performed in just one dental visit
  • The composite material is fracture-resistant
  • Composite fillings can fix both minor dental defects and larger damages

Who Needs Tooth Fillings?

You may need composite tooth fillings for the following reasons:  

  • Severe tooth decay and cavities
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
You may have a cavity and need dental fillings if you suddenly experience a toothache, sensitivity to temperature, or discomfort in your teeth. 

Procedure

At Park Creek Dental Care, the procedure of fixing a cavity with composite fillings is as follows:

  • The procedure begins with the dentist selecting the composite material that matches the shade of the patient's teeth.
  • The dentist numbs the affected area and removes any of the decayed portions of the tooth. 
  • Once the decayed and infected part is removed, the area is cleaned, dried, and prepared for the fillings.
  • Then, the composite material is layered into the cavity.
  • The material is set, contoured, smoothed, and polished using a laser for the best comfort and fit.
  • As the last step, the dentist ensures the proper function of the bite.

How to Take Care of Composite Dental Fillings

  • Brush your teeth twice a day, floss, and use a mouth rinse.
  • Visit our dentist at least twice a year for dental checkups.
  • Consider getting preventative treatments.
