Composite Dental Fillings

A composite tooth-colored filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, etc. The decayed or altered portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. Reasons you may need to get composite fillings include, but are not limited to:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

Composite dental fillings are the better alternative to amalgam fillings for both color and esthetics, because they are bonded directly to the tooth. Bonded restoration of composites results in less preparation of the tooth which is more conservative than the older amalgam option. Family Dental Care places composite restoration fillings every day. You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

Complete Composite Fillings in One Appointment

Family Dental Care provides complete composite fillings all in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, Dr. Johnson will remove decay as needed and then the space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. The composite mixture will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be carefully matched to the shade of existing teeth. They are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth. You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.

This visit was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I have horrible anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist. The entire staff was warm, welcoming, understanding and thorough. I have always had certain issues with staining and sensitivity in my teeth, and I was given much education on all matters to help alleviate pain, help with sensitivity and overall oral health. No other dentist I have seen has ever been as thorough or explanatory. They are also really kind and great with kids.

Made a very anxious situation a very pleasurable experience. Broke a tooth requiring quick attention. Was not a current patient of this office but was seen the very next morning after I called. Incredible customer service from Dr. Johnson, her assistant, Aaliyah, & office manager, Christine, in tending to my needs. Had a tooth repaired & a new crown installed, and I was out in less than two hours. I would highly recommend this office for all of your dental needs.

Everyone is professional, friendly, and competent in what they do. The dentist is experienced and keeps up with new methods and equipment. The office manager is able to answer any questions about your insurance or method of payment. If she doesn't have an immediate answer, she will contact the company while you wait or get back to you in a short time. The hygienists are experienced and thorough in delivery of their special services.

Always friendly and quick appointments! They are very accommodating when it comes to scheduling if you have a dental emergency or are in pain. Dr Johnson and the team are so comforting and kind, which makes it a lot easier if you’re someone who gets dentist anxiety. I love that they walk you through the whole process to keep you informed, and always make sure you are comfortable.

All went well. Care was taken to ensure my comfort during procedure. All over pretty quick except the novocaine wearing off. That took about 2 hours. No pain experienced.

Mary Ann White

I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson’s for several years. My dentist retired and I was dreading finding a new provider. I am glad I found Dr. Johnson. I have been very satisfied with the care and treatment I have received. Every visit I have had the same hygienist which is great. Melissa is professional, thorough and caring. She goes above and beyond and it is appreciated.

Sue Mack

I have been a patient for several years and have always had excellent experiences, however, today was my daughter's first time there and as with me they were awesome with her. They set her up with a teeth cleaning plan as well as other dental concerns she had. Great and very helpful office to deal with.
