Ottawa Composite Fillings

If you are looking to repair a decayed, chipped, broken, or fractured tooth, have you ever considered composite fillings? A composite filling is a natural-looking tooth made from a plastic and glass mixture that can be used to restore the function of damaged teeth and blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.

 

There are two types of composite fillings:

Direct Composite Filling or Bonding: In this case, our team would repair a damaged tooth by applying the tooth-colored resin to the specific area and then set the material in place using a special light.

Indirect Composite or Porcelain Inlay: These fillings are usually used to repair teeth located at the back of the mouth and the procedure often requires two visits at our Ottawa dentist office. To guarantee strength and durability, the white filling is pre-fabricated in a lab and put into position during the second visit.

Maintenance of Composite Fillings

Composite fillings require maintenance, therefore, practicing good oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing is key along with a well-balanced diet and minimal sugar intake. Being mindful of not biting into hard objects that can chip or cause damage to your composite filling is also very important. Coffee, tea, or red wine intake should also be kept to a minimum in order to prevent staining.
