All You Need to Know About Composite Dental Fillings

Posted .

Composite dental fillings are top-notch dental restorations that can restore full health and function in your decayed, broken and even disfigured teeth. They are strong, reliable and natural-looking products that can help you reach your smile and oral health goals. Our dentists, Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen, are proud to offer composite dental fillings in Mesa, Arizona.

When restoring a decayed tooth, our dentist will numb the mouth with a local anesthetic to help you feel comfortable and avoid pain. Then, they will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the tooth and then create a filling material that is the perfect shade for your tooth. Next, they will fill the tooth with the filling, will shape the filling and then will harden it.

When restoring a broken or disfigured tooth, our dentist will create a resin that is the perfect shade for your smile. Next, they will roughen and condition the front surface of the tooth. This will help the resin bond with the tooth. Our dentist will then apply the resin to the tooth and then will mold and shape it to the desired appearance. Lastly, they will solidify the filling with a special light and will polish it.
