Have your composite fillings done by a trusted La Mesa dentist

Composite fillings are usually done for individuals who have chipped and cracked, decaying or cavity-filled teeth.

Composite FillingsThe procedure is performed by cleansing the tooth surface that has been infected by bacteria. The infected tissues are removed, the tooth is drilled using different sizes of carbide burs, after which an appropriate filling material is applied to cover and seal it. Traditionally, silver amalgam fillings were used to fill cavities, but for a more aesthetic approach, and to prevent mercury poisoning, composite fillings are much preferred nowadays. Another aesthetic option would be to make use of ceramic indirect fillings. Indirect fillings are fabricated on a model cast, outside the mouth, and they are cemented onto the cleansed cavity.

The complete assessment of your dentist will help determine, whether or not, you and your specific tooth condition is best addressed with a composite filling or another restorative option.
