1. What are composite fillings?


Composite fillings, ie. "white" fillings serve as fillings for teeth damaged by caries, cracks or fractures. They have exceptional aesthetic and mechanical characteristics, so they fit resolutely with the natural color of the teeth.


2. What materials are white fillings made of?


Composite fillings, as their name suggests, are made from a group of materials called composites. These are modern materials with good mechanical properties that are widely used in dentistry. In addition to the fillings themselves in order to compensate for the lost tooth substance, they can also be used for making veneers, correcting the color and the shape of teeth.

 

3. What are the advantages of composite fillings over amalgam ones?


The constant work on the improvement and development of new aesthetic (white) fillings has almost completely pushed out the use of the so-called black, ie. amalgam fillings. The main difference is in the aesthetic characteristics, because composite fillings fit perfectly with the color of natural teeth. Another advantage is the way they bind to the natural tooth, where composite fillings also have a great advantage.

 

They bind to the tooth both physically and chemically, thus restoring the tooth to almost its natural strength. Amalgam fillings can spread over time and cause teeth to crack, and their connection to the tooth is weaker.

 

4. What does the procedure for placing a composite filling look like?


The first stage when placing a composite seal is the preparation of the cavity. This involves the preparation of teeth, ie. making space for composite material. The preparation of the cavity removes caries, and if the defect has reached the pulp (nerve), a special coating is applied to protect it. The tooth is then prepared for filling and the composite material is placed in layers until the tooth substance is completely compensated. 

 

 

5. How many visits to the dentist are needed to make a composite filling?


White fillings are made in just one visit to the dentist. In cases when it is preceded by dental treatment, the number of visits increases.

 

6. Can I change the shape of my front teeth with a composite filling?

 

Composite materials are also used to make composite veneers on front teeth. With this procedure, small corrections can be made to the shape and color of the front teeth. These veneers are easy to make and with good maintenance after that, they can last a long time and have extremely beautiful aesthetic characteristics.

7. How long does a composite filling last?


The lifespan of white fillings depends on several factors and will depend on whether all procedures were followed during its installation. The longevity of the filling itself also depends on the quality of the composite material, because it is not the same whether cheaper or more expensive composite materials are used. Dental Plaza Dental Office uses the highest quality white fillings from a renowned manufacturer. Also, the location of the filling on the tooth, as well as its size, can affect its lifespan. Fillings that compensate for large tooth surfaces are more prone to cracking.


8. How are white fillings maintained?

 

There are no special instructions when it comes to maintaining composite fillings. The most important thing is to maintain adequate oral hygiene and to listen to further instructions from your dentist. Dental Plaza is here to clarify all your doubts when it comes to maintaining oral hygiene.

 

9. When is the time to replace composite fillings?


Dilapidated composite fillings that need to be replaced are mainly characterized by the existence of gaps between the filling and the tooth walls. Such spaces are predisposing places for food accumulation and for caries development. Of course, this is not the rule in every case, so it is best to consult with your dentist, who will give you the best advice.


10. Are there any contraindications for placing such fillings?


There are no contraindications to making composite fillings. There may be limitations if a large amount of dental substance is missing, so in that case a longer-lasting solution such as a crown is indicated.
