How are the composite fillings placed?
To start the treatment, Dr. Bojorquez will use a CT scan to evaluate the condition.
Then, she will numb the area with a local anesthetic so the procedure is completely comfortable. After the dentist has completely removed the cavities or finished the root canals work, the composite resin is placed layer by layer, hardening each one with a specialized light. The final layer will be carved and polished to restore the natural appearance and function of the tooth, this way you can get a beautiful smile without changing the normal balance of your bite.
In case that patients want to change their current amalgam fillings for composite, the Dr. will follow the same first steps, and then remove the old resin and replace it with a composite filling that matches teeth color. This dental filling will bring back the natural look of your smile.
Amalgam fillings VS Composite fillings
Formerly, the material used to restore decayed teeth were metal compounds. Even if these materials were efficient and long-lasting, repaired teeth looked unsightly, with a dark spot. Nowadays, modern dentistry prefers to use composite fillings, which are a mixture of plastic and glass. As composite fillings have an identical color to the tooth, the restored area blends with the natural teeth and provides a completely natural-looking result.
Composite resin is also used in cosmetic dentistry to repair broken and chipped teeth and filling teeth gaps, among other uses. While the cost of composite fillings is higher than silver fillings, the natural and aesthetic finish is well worth it.

Composite fillings aftercare
After placement of composite fillings, it’s advised to avoid dark drinks such as coffee, tea, or soda, for at least 24 hours after the treatment to prevent staining. Afterwards, daily tooth brushing is the only necessary dental care to keep them in shape, so the maintenance is very simple overall. At this time it is also important to be aware of your bite and how it feels. If it is out of its natural balance, you need to come back so the Dr. can trim and carve the area until it feels perfect.
The first couple of days after the treatment it is normal to experience some sensitivity. We recommend a diet avoiding hot, cold, or sugary foods since these can worsen the discomfort. However, the sensation is temporary and soon you will be able to enjoy complete dental function again.
Also, if the restored area is extensive, you should be careful when eating hard food to prevent fracture. Composite fillings are significantly strong and long-lasting, but it is not your natural dental tissue, so we recommend avoiding chewing ice, biting your nails, or using your teeth to open packages. Usually, the duration of the resin is slightly less than metal fillings, but it may be longer with proper care.
Benefits of this dental treatment
One of the biggest advantages of composite fillings is the great support that gives to the tooth, providing strength while preventing breakage or structural damage. These dental fillings are easier to shape and contour, so the occlusion will be completely restored and the chewing function remains unaffected. Also, the bacteria is fully removed to prevent tooth decay and future damage to the rest of your smile, so you can have good oral health.
Due to modern technology, these mouth restorations are stronger than metal compounds and they offer long-lasting results. Another important difference is that composite fillings don’t expand or contract with temperature changes, which assure us that the tooth structure isn’t compromised.
Composite tooth fillings take less time to prepare and the material is easy to work with, so the procedure is quicker and comfortable. Through this dental work, you can make sure that you will regain a beautiful smile forever in a short time!
