A Closer Look at Composite Fillings

A cosmetic dentistry procedure near Park Ridge might include a composite filling or white filling. This special type of filling is used by cosmetic dentists when a cavity is visible on one of the front teeth because it can be color-matched to your natural teeth.

After a dental cleaning, when your cosmetic dentist prepares a cavity filling, he might suggest a composite filling. As you can see in the video, composite fillings are made up of a plastic resin and ground-up glass particles. After the tooth has been prepared, the dentist will use a thin separator to keep the affected tooth from contamination by the rest of the mouth. He will then apply the composite filling as needed. This kind of filling may not be suitable on all teeth, so follow your dentist’s recommendations.
