Dental Composite Fillings

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Composites cost more than amalgam and occasionally are not covered by some insurance plans. Also, no dental filling lasts forever. Some studies show that composite fillings can be less durable and need to be replaced more often than amalgam fillings.

It generally takes longer to place a composite filling than it does for a metal filling. That’s because composite fillings require the tooth be kept clean and dry while the cavity is being filled. Tooth-colored fillings are now used more often than amalgam or gold fillings, probably due to cosmetics. In a society focused on a white, bright smile, people tend to want fillings that blend with the natural color of their teeth.

Ultimately, the best dental filling is no dental filling. Prevention is the best medicine. You can dramatically decrease your risk of cavities and other dental diseases simply by:

  • Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Flossing daily
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Visiting the dentist regularly.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions.

Get answers to common queries in our FAQ section.

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth, involving the surgical placement of a titanium post into the jawbone, which serves as a foundation for a replacement tooth. Good candidates for dental implants are individuals with healthy gums and sufficient bone density to support the implant. Patients should also be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental visits to ensure the longevity of their implants.

Wisdom teeth extraction is a common oral surgery procedure performed to remove one or more of the third molars located at the back of the mouth. During the procedure, you will receive local anesthesia, and in some cases, sedation to ensure comfort. After the extraction, it is normal to experience swelling and discomfort for a few days. Following post-operative care instructions, such as keeping the extraction site clean and avoiding certain foods, will promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth, enhancing their appearance. They are ideal for correcting issues such as discoloration, chips, gaps, and minor misalignments. Veneers provide a natural-looking and durable solution that can significantly improve the aesthetics of your smile. The procedure typically involves two visits: one for tooth preparation and impression-taking, and the second for bonding the veneers to your teeth.

Professional teeth whitening at Saddleback Dental offers several advantages over over-the-counter products. Our in-office whitening treatments provide faster and more effective results, often lightening teeth by several shades in just one session. Additionally, our custom take-home kits are tailored to your specific needs, ensuring even and consistent whitening. Professional supervision also minimizes the risk of sensitivity and gum irritation, ensuring a safer and more comfortable experience.

A root canal is necessary when the dental pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or injury. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and sealing them with a filling material. Root canals help save the natural tooth and prevent the need for extraction. Most patients report that the procedure is no more uncomfortable than getting a regular filling.

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the health of the gums and the supporting structures of the teeth. At Saddleback Dental, our periodontal services include deep cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing, as well as surgical interventions for advanced gum disease. Regular periodontal check-ups and treatments can help prevent the progression of gum disease, reduce inflammation, and preserve the health of your gums and teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental visits are essential for preventing and managing gum disease.
