What Are Composites & Provisional Fillings?

Dental composites are resin-based and made from synthetic materials that combine polymeric matrix with a dispersion of glass, mineral, or resin filler particles. These composites can restore tooth structure that has been lost due to trauma or diseases. Provisional dental fillings are restorations made from rigid, durable materials. This is so they can better withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. Additionally, these fillings are made to match the color and shape of one’s natural teeth. Provisional fillings are meant to be in place longer than temporary fillings.

The Benefits of a Composite Filling

Composite fillings provide patients with a wide range of benefits. Whether a patient requires one or multiple fillings, composite fillings help ensure a long-lasting, healthy smile. The benefits of composite fillings include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Can bind well to enamel
  • Unlikely to pop loose or loosen
  • Versatile enough to fix cracks or chips
  • Not affected by temperature
  • Nearly invisible since they are color-matched to one’s natural teeth
  • Can fill small-to-moderate cavities
  • Not prone to expand or contract
  • Less drilling is required
  • A special light bonds the filling quickly

The Composite Filling Procedure

At the beginning of the composite filling procedure, patients will have their gums, teeth, and treatment area numbed with a local anesthetic. This is done to help lessen discomfort and prevent pain. Any of the existing tooth decay is then removed with a drill—this may take several minutes to complete, and patients should be told to expect slight pressure. Next, the composite filling is molded to the correct shape necessary to restore the tooth to its natural appearance. Finally, a special light is used to harden the various layers of the composite filling quickly and efficiently.
