Composite Fillings in Middletown and Newport, RI
      
Composite fillings, or resin fillings, are a mixture of glass and plastic material that dentists use to plug cavities and make cosmetic improvements, such as fixing the color or shape of disfigured teeth.

Traditional amalgam fillings are made with a variety of metals – primarily a liquid form or mercury with added metals, such as silver, copper, tin or gold. Depending on the size of a filling or the amount of fillings a patient has in their mouth, this type is often visible to others when speaking or eating.

Composite fillings closely match the color of real teeth for a more natural appearance. Many patients who are seeking a front-tooth restoration also appreciate the value of having dental work that looks as natural and close as possible to the rest of their teeth. Composite fillings also address health concerns and often appeal to people who don’t want metal in their mouth.

The Benefits of Composite Fillings/Resin Fillings

  • Composite fillings are more discrete – they closely match the color of natural teeth.
  • Composite fillings provide added tooth support – they’re made with a substance that chemically bonds to the tooth structure.
  • Composite fillings are versatile – they can repair tooth decay and fix chipped, broken, and worn teeth.

Composite fillings are fitted much the same way metal filling are:

1. The tooth is numbed to ensure a comfortable and painless procedure.
2. The material is applied in layers and hardened with a special light after each application.
3. The composite is shaped to fit the tooth.
4. The composite is polished to prevent staining and early wear.
