Composite Fillings New Hyde Park, Long Island

Although there are many restorative filling options such as amalgam fillings, many patients prefer composite fillings. White composite fillings are perfect for your front teeth as they are aesthetically pleasing and appear very similar to natural teeth.

After the detection of tooth decay by the dental experts at North Island Dental Arts, the process of repair begins. Our dentists thoroughly remove the decayed parts of the tooth. The leftover area is then sterilized. The hole is filled with the composite filling, layer by layer. The filling is later cured with special light. Once filled, the composite filling is polished, and any lasting adjustments are made. Composite fillings are extremely durable and last for a very long time.

Composite fillings can also be used to make small corrections to teeth. This process is known as dental bonding. It can be used to treat conditions such as:

  • A chipped tooth
  • Worn teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gaps in the teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Odd shaped teeth

Composite filling treatment is a lot less invasive and requires no prep work. Through this process the tooth structure remains the same and the fillings work as add-ons on the existing structure of the teeth. This improves the aesthetics.
