What Are Composite Fillings?

Dental fillings in Oxnard at Esthetic Smiles are made by resin composite

As our dental filling of choice, a composite filling is made from a mixture of plastic and glass. The plastic and glass combination is used to create a tooth-colored filling for a more natural look to your restored tooth. In order to defend from further tooth decay in Oxnard, a resin composite filling is placed in layers and hardened to fit the shape of the tooth. Composite fillings are the preferred method of restoring teeth affected by tooth decay because of their ability to keep decayed teeth looking natural and normal. If you would like to know more about dental fillings in Oxnard or schedule your appointment for restoration, give us a call at (805) 988-2250 or click the 'appointments' button below.

Excellent Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth decay in Oxnard can be taken care of easily with tooth-colored fillings

Traditional metal fillings of the past are made from an amalgam that consists of around 50% mercury. Mercury is a metal that has proven to be extremely toxic to humans. Unfortunately, with amalgam fillings, the mercury may leak into the patient’s body over time. While the debate on the safety of amalgam fillings is ongoing, many dentists, like our staff at Esthetic Smiles, have chosen to work entirely with resin or tooth-colored fillings for the treatment of tooth decay in Oxnard to eliminate any risk. With that being said, the dental fillings we use today are an improvement over the amalgam fillings because they are able to match the material with your surrounding teeth. This eliminates any of the visibility of a dental filling. However, the benefits of a tooth-colored filling are not only cosmetic. Unlike traditional fillings, tooth-colored, or resin composite fillings, are more heat resistant. This means that they are more comfortable for you and they also minimize further tooth breakage. Lastly, resin fillings bond to the tooth’s surface and can be molded to the precise shape of the tooth, which allows for less leakage for further tooth decay in Oxnard.

"The Process of a Filling is Pain-Free"

"The Process of a Filling is Pain-Free"

Tooth decay in Oxnard is usually an easy fix with composite cavity fillings

"Our dental staff at Esthetic Smiles makes the process of a dental filling easy and pain-free for each patient. We take the time to listen to all of your concerns and make sure you are comfortable. Before performing the procedure we'll numb the area affected. Once numb, Dr. Abajian will remove the tooth decay and add the resin composite filling to your tooth. Once your new filling has been bonded to the tooth, it will be polished and ready to use like your normal teeth unless another procedure such as a dental crown is required."
