Take Control over Your Teeth Cavities with Composite Fillings
When you have dental cavities, your dentist may recommend dental fillings. However, you might be jittery about this restorative treatment because you have seen people expose unsightly metal fillings when laughing or talking. Luckily, at Anjum A. Ansari DMD in Boston, Massachusetts, we provide naturally-looking composite fillings that discreetly fix your dental caries without drawing unwarranted attention.
Why do you need to address your cavities today
Cavities might be painless, but they can progress into larger holes that lead to tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated. And since cavities are subtle, it takes the eye of a professional and dental xraysto spot them to devise a treatment plan. In light of this, missing dental exams and teeth cleaning appointments can be disastrous since cavities might go on unnoticed only to be spotted when it’s too late.
Composite fillings for teeth restoration
Composite fillings are created from metal-free, tooth-colored material to fix cracks and holes. Unlike metal fillings, composite fillings look natural, blending in perfectly with your smile. Furthermore, composite fillings are durable and can last up to 10 years with proper care.
Dental fillings procedure
If you need a cavity filled, Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. does it in one appointment. It all starts with cleaning and removal of the decayed part. The process is painless, so you don’t have to worry about discomfort. Next, we apply composite material to the tooth and use a curing light to harden the material layer by layer.
After this is done, Dr. Ansari shapes the filling and tests your bite to see if you are comfortable. If your bite isn’t comfortable, the doctor makes necessary adjustments before you leave. After the procedure, you may experience a little sensitivity, but this will wear down naturally after a few hours.
Benefits of composite fillings
While fillings can be made of metal alloys, composite fillings are preferable because of the below benefits.
- They closely resemble your natural teeth
- Require less drilling compared to other fillings
- Composite fillings harden within seconds after exposure to curing light
- They are versatile to fix cracked, decayed, or chipped teeth
- You don’t have to worry about mercury in amalgam fillings
