Langley Composite Fillings

The Advantages of Composites (White) Fillings

Composite fillings are perfect for small to medium sized fillings, and are best suited for teeth that experience a moderate amount of pressure when chewing, compared to the teeth that handle the bulk of your chewing.

Composite fillings are usually made up of powdered glass and acrylic resin, and, unlike amalgam fillings, don’t contain any traces of mercury. Composite fillings can also be shaded to match the colour of your existing teeth, making them much less visible to other people. As more and more people have been looking for that natural look, composite fillings have grown increasingly popular.

Things You Need to Know About Composite (white) Fillings

All composite (white) fillings will be need to be replaced at some point--because of the extensive wear and tear your teeth undergo each and every day, all composite fillings will wear down with time.

A damaged or cracked filling should be replaced as soon as possible--even the smallest, hairline cracks in your composite filling can allow bacteria and germs to seep into your tooth. Once the bacteria and germs seep into your tooth, they are impossible to remove with brushing and flossing. If the damage to your filling isn't fixed in a timely manner, the bacteria can damage the soft inner part of the tooth, known as the pulp, leading to tooth decay.

Composite fillings aren't a seal for your tooth--even the most sophisticated fillings can't be a substitute for your real teeth. This means that it's important to not only brush your teeth properly but also to keep up with regular dental cleanings every six months.
