The Need of Composite Fillings

You would have definitely heard of tooth fillings. That is exactly what our Composite Filling procedure is. Composite means plastic mixtures that are specially used for dentistry purposes. They are brought in clinical use and they are used for a number of purposes. Many times, teeth have broken areas in them. Part of tooth may get broken in an injury or accident. To cover that up, composite filling works. They help fill in the cavities of the molars. Many times, people suffer from tooth decay. After the dentist cleans the tooth from dental carries, he covers the affected area with the filling. Usually children are those in dire need for composite fillings because they eat many toffees.

As far as its durability is concerned, the composite may wither away with time, or with every chewing and swallowing of food. It would not last for a lifetime. That is why when the filling seems to be lessened, one should go for us and get it done. However, like always advancements are going on. In addition, new resins for Composite Fillings are being made that would last for lifetime.

The composite fillings are made using some specific materials. These include porcelain, silica, resin, and quartz. This filling looks like natural and it goes almost same to the color of the teeth. This resin binds with the teeth in such a way that no difference is noticed. Previously, the composite fillings were used for the front teeth. Sometimes there were breakages in the teeth due to eating habits. These resins were then used to join the teeth. However, with the passage of time, the introduction of new polymers resulted in the composite resin becoming stronger and lasting for long. That is when it started being used for filling. This has proven to be a great help for those who have decayed teeth.

There are also the amalgam fillings; however, Composite Fillings are more widely used. Usually when a person with decayed tooth goes to the dentist, the dentist gives him the option between composite filling and amalgam filling. The materials used for preparing the composite fillings are known to be expensive. Usually it is present only at private clinics.

The reason why our composite fillings are more expensive is that they are long lasting and durable. This depends mainly on the materials which we use for their manufacturing. Usually people who go for composite fillings do not have to worry, because the bond stays for long. Another important thing to remember, which may amaze you is that where the color of filling is concerned, the patient is not limited to one color. Usually people want their filling to match the color of their teeth, and so it is common that dentists do it in the natural color. However, patients can choose the color in which they want the filling to be done. Thus, if you feel that part of your teeth has been chipped of, then you must rush to our dentists. Composite Filling is mainly done in the molars.
