What Are Composite Resin Fillings?

Composite resin fillings are a metal-free restorative treatment option for patients aged 6 and older. The filling material is made from a blend of dental-grade plastics and glass-ceramic particles. Also known as white fillings or tooth-colored fillings, the composite resin can be shaded to match the natural color of your surrounding tooth for a seamless restoration.

Do I Need A Filling?

Are you concerned about your smile? Cavities are often noticeable to the naked eye, but sometimes can hide between teeth or in the back of your mouth where you can’t see. It may be time to call your dentist if you notice one or more of the following signs of tooth decay:

  • A pit or dark spot on the surface of your tooth
  • A rough patch on your tooth when you run your tongue over it
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Sensitivity to heat or cold
  • Toothache

What Are The Benefits Of Composite Fillings?

Unlike metal fillings (such as silver or gold), composite fillings don’t need extensive tooth preparation to place. The material chemically bonds to the structures of your teeth, providing increased strength for your restoration. This also means that our dentist can place your filling without removing or reshaping the structure underneath the filling, making it a conservative treatment option.

Composite resin is also used in a variety of treatments and procedures, such as:

  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Treating stained or discolored teeth
  • Reshaping worn-down or uneven teeth
  • Filling gaps between teeth

How Long Do Composite Fillings Last?

On average, you can expect your composite filling to last 5-7 years. You can extend the lifetime of your restoration by practicing good at-home care and oral hygiene between checkups. If you do experience any chipping or cracking, call our office right away. We can easily repair or replace your filling without the need for extensive drilling or reshaping.

How Much Do Composite Fillings Cost?

Composite fillings are an affordable restorative treatment, as they cost less than gold or porcelain. On average, composite fillings cost slightly more than traditional silver fillings, but the benefits of the composite resin outweighs the minor cost difference. Our team will provide you with a complete breakdown of all treatment costs during your visit, as well as discuss our payment plans and financing options.

Do You Take Insurance?

Yes, we do! Monaco Dentistry works with most major dental insurance plans. For your convenience, we accept all dental PPO plans. A friendly member of our team is available to answer any questions you may have about your insurance coverage, out-of-pocket costs, and our dental insurance policies.

Do You Accept Walk-ins And Emergency Appointments?

Yes, we do. At Monaco Dentistry, our doctors and team do everything we can to see patients as soon as scheduling permits and provide prompt service. We also offer emergency appointments to see our patients as promptly as possible.
