About Composite Cavity Fillings

Composite cavity fillings are tooth-colored fillings designed to repair decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth. Resin-based composites have been used since the 1960s to restore decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth, benefiting patients according to their cavity. These resin-based composites are very effective for filling small-scale cavities.

Why Get Cavity Fillings?

When restoring your fractured or decayed teeth, you have a couple of choices to restore natural-looking teeth. Composite cavity fillings can change teeth color, repair chipped or decayed teeth, close teeth gaps, and make cosmetic improvements. The benefits of composite fillings include:

  • Improve aesthetic look by matching teeth color and appearance
  • Restore natural-looking teeth without removing the teeth structure
  • Bond directly to the teeth, which makes your teeth greater strength and long-lasting
  • Harden within a couple of seconds
  • Requires less drilling, which is painless and more comfortable

Composite Cavity Fillings Procedure

The procedure for composite cavity fillings is straightforward and can be done in just one appointment. At Kremer Dental Care, we check the condition of your teeth and remove necessary decay. After that, we clean your teeth thoroughly to prepare for the filling. Among several composite fillings procedures, the most used procedure consists of:

  • Preparing the teeth through drilling and trimming, shade selecting, and cleaning
  • Etching acid on the tooth's surface
  • Applying liquid synthetic on the etched tooth surface
  • Creating and applying composite fillings
  • Curing the composite restoration 
  • Shaping and polishing

Here’s what our patients are saying about us...

  • For years I had disliked my smile because I went to a dentist who did more harm than good. After going to Dr. Kremer I have a wonderful smile and receive compliments on how beautiful my teeth are.  

    Dr. Kremer's staff is caring and compassionate and explains procedures that will be done and how long it will take. I couldn't be happier with the service I received.

    Dr. Kremer advertises as a dentist but he really a magician! Thanks, Dr. Kremer, for restoring something I thought I would never see again.....a beautiful smile.

  • I love my new smile! I have had lifelong dental problems that have made me apprehensive and actually fearful to see a dentist. 

    From the moment I walked into his office door I felt as if I was the staff's number one priority. Their friendly welcome put me immediately at ease.

    Dr. Kremer's office is beautiful and the dental equipment is state-of-the-art. I am glad I chose a dentist who is so knowledgeable and a leader in the dental field. Thanks Dr. Kremer, I love my new smile.

  • My confidence level is off the charts! Looking back on my teeth before veneers... WOW! Major, major difference! 

    In the process between the temporary and the porcelains, there were quite a few visits to the dentist office to make sure the real things were going to fit just right and feel natural. In the mean time, when my teeth weren't feeling accurate, Dr. Kremer and the team didn't waste any time fitting me into their schedule to figure out exactly what the problem was.
