Did you know that dental fillings are one of the most common restorative treatments offered in dentistry? At Dental Zone, we provide composite dental fillings in Mountain View, California, to repair your smile!
What Are Composite Dental Fillings?
Much like traditional dental fillings, composite dental fillings use a filling material to fill cavities in the teeth left by dental decay. The difference, however, is that while traditional fillings use a silver amalgam metal, composite fillings use a white composite material, which is designed to blend with your natural tooth color and create a more structurally sound and long-lasting repair.
Benefits of composite dental fillings include:
- Reduced risk of tooth breakage
- Better seal against bacteria and food debris
- Temperature insulation
- More nuanced application for smaller cavity repair
- Metal and mercury-free
Additionally, composite dental fillings can be used for both children and adults and have now become the standard in much of the dental industry. Receiving a composite dental filling only takes one visit and is a simple, inexpensive procedure.
