Composite Fillings


Have you been searching for a natural-looking way to fill in unsightly gaps? Composite fillings will fill in any existing holes without being noticed, unlike a traditional metal filling.

At Care Dental Center, we know how important it is to have a smile that is both attractive and healthy. Our innovative composite fillings give your teeth long-lasting strength while also blending in seamlessly with your natural teeth.

What are Composite Dental Fillings?

A composite dental filling is a mixture composed of high-quality quartz and plastic, that is used to fill in holes or gaps present on your teeth. Our fillings are all expertly matched to the color of your natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell. Composite fillings are a fantastic alternative to metal fillings and will restore strength and beauty to your teeth with no down time!

What Are the Benefits of Composite Fillings?

  • Reduces the risk of developing future tooth decay
  • Polishes your teeth for a more even appearance
  • Results can last for many years with correct dental hygiene
  • Gives your teeth vital protection against bacteria and debris

What Is the Process for Getting Composite Fillings?

The composite filling process starts with a consultation, where we take any necessary x-rays, and you will have an expert examination by our dentist, Dr. Omid Barkhordar. He will discuss your restoration options with you and will design a personalized treatment plan in order to ensure that your composite fillings are comfortable and fit well with the look of your smile.

The procedure will first involve the removal of existing debris, bacteria, and decay. Dr. Barkhordar will then skillfully fill in the holes that the tooth decay created using our advanced dental adhesive and composite substance. The application of our modern compound bonding material will stabilize the filling and seal the tooth for long-lasting results.

How Long Do Composite Fillings Last?

On average, composite fillings last between 5 and 7 years. They have been known to last as long as 10 years, but their lifespan is dependent on factors including:

  • Location: There’s more wear and tear on composite fillings located on molars than on those applied to fill a gap, for instance. Being exposed to more wear can sometimes require repair of composite fillings sooner.
  • Diet: Hard or chewy foods can wear down composite fillings and even damage them.
  • Oral hygiene: Composite fillings may require maintenance if tooth decay has set in, and tooth enamel is no longer healthy.
  • Bruxism: Grinding and clenching teeth during sleep can damage composite fillings (and natural teeth). Sleeping with a mouth guard can alleviate the strain at night.
