Preserve A Healthy Smile With Tooth Decay Treatment In Abbotsford, BC

Tooth decay is a common dental issue that affects millions of people worldwide. At Blossom Dental Care in Abbotsford, BC, we offer effective treatments such as composite fillings, a versatile and aesthetically pleasing option for restoring damaged teeth. What are composite fillings? Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored or white fillings, are a dental restoration designed to treat tooth decay while maintaining the natural appearance of the tooth. They are composed of a blend of durable resin and fine glass particles, creating a material that is both strong and can be customizable in terms of colour and texture. How are they placed? Our dentist will start by conducting a thorough examination, which may include X-rays, to assess the extent of the decay. Local anesthesia is administered, numbing the affected tooth and surrounding area. The dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth, creating a clean foundation for the filling. Layers of the composite material are applied to the prepared tooth. Each layer is cured using a specialized light. This process is repeated until the filling reaches the desired size and shape. The dentist sculpts the filling to match the natural contours of the tooth and ensures a proper bite alignment. The composite is polished to a smooth finish, blending seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. What are the benefits of composite fillings?
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. This aesthetic advantage is especially significant for front teeth.
  • Conservation of Tooth Structure: Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings often require less removal of healthy tooth structure.
  • Durability: Composite fillings are strong and resistant to fracture, offering long-lasting support to the treated tooth.
  • Mercury-Free: Composite fillings are mercury-free, addressing concerns associated with amalgam fillings.
  • Reduced Sensitivity: Composite materials are less conducive to temperature changes, reducing post-treatment sensitivity commonly associated with other filling materials.
