What is a composite filling?
Filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma. It is also lost intentionally during tooth preparation to improve the aesthetics or the physical integrity of the intended restorative material. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure that is supported by dental implants.
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection.
The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.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.
What People Are Saying
Very professional, competent and friendly team. They accepted my insurance and I had to pay very little out of pocket. I highly recommend them.
SEAN C. ON YELP
The scanning technology he used "iTero" to take an image of how my teeth are is so accurate that the veneers and crowns fit like a glove! He used the same technology to order my invasline which means the accuracy would be perfect and leads to good quality work.
TALIB N. ON YELP
Having my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Mehran Varedi was a very positive experience! He and the nurses were very informative and were checking in on me periodically throughout the procedure to make sure I was okay.

I've been to over 7 different dentists in my lifetime, if not more. This is the best dentist I have ever been to, hands down. You can tell they care about doing quality work and providing the best care instead of a lot of other places that just want to treat you like a customer.
