What you need to know about composite resin fillings in Kennesaw, GA


Composite Resin Fillings at 32 Dental Kennesaw
Composite fillings, otherwise known as tooth-colored fillings, are used when a tooth has been affected by decay or trauma. During the process, the affected area of the tooth is removed and then filled. At 32 Dental in Kennesaw, GA, we use composite resin fillings because they are strong, safe, and natural-looking.

Why composite resin fillings?

There are many different types of filling materials available: amalgam, gold, porcelain, and composite resin. We use composite resin fillings because they are metal-free and biocompatible. They can be color-matched to your natural teeth making them a more aesthetically appealing solution than gold or silver fillings.

Common reasons for composite resin fillings:

  • Decayed teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Worn teeth

How we place composite resin fillings

Composite resin fillings can be placed in a single appointment. We begin by using local anesthetic to numb the area. Once the area is sufficiently numb, we remove any damaged structure and then clean the area before placing the filling material. For a deep cavity close to the nerve of the tooth, we may use special medication to keep the area protected.

Once the area is ready, the composite filling is placed directly in the tooth and hardened with a special light. It can then be shaped and polished to restore the shape and function of the tooth.

It’s important to know that sensitivity to hot or cold is common after a composite filling is placed. This will go away once the tooth adapts to the filling.

While composite fillings are extremely durable and can last for many years with proper oral care, they may need to be replaced over time. If you are in the Kennesaw, GA area and would like to learn more about composite resin fillings, call 32 Dental today at (770) 423-1132.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
