Composite Fillings

About Composite Fillings


Composite is currently the best restorative dental material owing to its excellent strength and unmatched aesthetic properties. Composites are also being used for various cosmetic dental procedures to give patients a complete aesthetic smile makeover without surgery. In the field of restorative dentistry however, the material has reshaped the way fillings are done, for the dentists, as well as the patients.

How composites are being used in cosmetic dentistry:

Patients sometimes want a complete dental makeover without having to go through numerous long appointments. In such cases, procedures such as composite veneering and direct dental bonding can conceal common dental imperfections such as permanent stains, chipped edges, old unsightly dental fillings, shape or size discrepancies, and gaps to give the patient a flawless new smile in a single sitting. Now patients can simply walk in with teeth they aren’t proud of, or confident about, and walk out with a gorgeous, celebrity-like smile without any surgery and in complete absence of pain.

The highly versatile material can be easily manipulated to replicate the contours of a natural tooth, so the smile doesn’t appear artificial. Composites are available in a large variety of shades and therefore it is very easy to find the perfect one based on the patient’s preferences.

Composites are:

  • Aesthetically pleasing
  • Highly versatile
  • Structurally stable
  • High strength
  • Non-toxic and non-irritant
  • Safe and biocompatible
