Composite Fillings

Composite fillings treat low to moderate tooth decay or damage, usually when only the surface, or enamel, of the tooth has been affected.
Iowa Dental Arts uses amalgam-free, composite fillings. These are often called white fillings or tooth-colored fillings and are created to match the shade of your teeth. Made of composite resin material, they are aesthetically superior to and do not present the health risks associated with metal fillings. The steps required for a composite filling can be completed in one visit:
  • Remove all decay and damage
  • Clean and dry the tooth and apply adhesive
  • Apply the filling, which is soft and malleable until hardened with an LED light
  • Shape and sculpt the filling to perfectly fit your bite
  • Bonded porcelain fillings are much stronger than metal amalgam fillings, so they provide a better seal on the tooth.
