    Composite Fillings: An Extensive Guide

    Welcome to our comprehensive guide on composite fillings. Through a blend of practical insights and scientific knowledge, we aim to empower your decision-making process. Ensuring the health of your smile is a priority, and with composite fillings, you can achieve a smile that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

    Understanding Composite Fillings

    What are Composite Fillings? Composite fillings are a modern solution for tooth decay and cavities. These tooth-colored fillings blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, delivering a solution that's both aesthetically appealing and durable. Utilizing a composite resin material, these fillings bond directly to the tooth, ensuring a superior fit and longer lifespan.

    Benefits of Composite Fillings at Sage Dental

    Aesthetic Appeal

    Composite fillings are not only beneficial to your oral health, but they also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your smile. Unlike traditional fillings, composite fillings match your natural tooth color, making them virtually unnoticeable.

    Tooth Bonding

    Composite fillings bond directly to your tooth, which increases the filling's durability while preserving the natural tooth structure. This bonding process makes composite fillings a healthier choice for your teeth.


    Composite fillings have versatile uses in cosmetic dentistry. Apart from treating cavities, they can be used to fix chipped or broken teeth, reducing sensitivity and restoring the shape of teeth.

    The Process of Getting Composite Fillings

    Consultation and Examination

    At Sage Dental, the first step towards getting composite fillings is a consultation with our experienced team. We utilize cutting-edge technology, including the iTero Scanner, to conduct a thorough examination of your oral health.

    The Filling Procedure

    Once the need for a composite filling is confirmed, our dental team will proceed with the filling procedure. It involves removing the decay, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with the composite resin.

    Patients Also Ask Us

    How long do composite fillings last?

    The longevity of composite fillings can range from 5 to 15 years or more, depending on factors such as oral hygiene habits and the location of the filling.

    What is the aftercare for composite fillings?

    Maintain a good oral hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing. Visit Sage Dental for routine check-ups and cleanings to prolong the life of your composite fillings.

    Are there any side effects of composite fillings?

    Composite fillings are safe. However, some people might experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages.

    Can composite fillings be whitened?

    Composite fillings do not respond to whitening treatments. If you plan to whiten your teeth, it's best to do so before getting composite fillings.

    Comparing Composite Fillings with Other Types

    Composite vs. Amalgam Fillings

    While amalgam fillings are durable and cost-effective, they're more noticeable due to their silver color. Composite fillings, however, offer a more aesthetic solution, blending with your natural teeth while providing comparable durability.

    Composite vs. Gold Fillings

    Gold fillings are durable but may be visible when you laugh or speak. Composite fillings provide a more natural appearance, making them the preferred choice for many individuals.

    How Much Does Composite Fillings cost?

    The cost of composite fillings varies based on several factors including the severity of decay, the number of fillings needed, and your geographical location.

    Is Composite Fillings Covered by Insurance?

    Many dental insurance plans partially cover composite fillings, especially for front teeth. However, coverage can vary, so it's essential to check with your insurance provider.

    I have been a patient of Sage Dental for about 5 years now, and have had a lot of dental work done by them,including implants.I had gone to Sage Dental with a badly fitting bridge,that was very uncomfortable to say the least. Dr Kara was able to give me implants and I can’t thank him enough. His staff are true professionals and amazing. I appreciate everything about this dentist,and especially the painless,sedation therapy I had for my extractions. I am convinced that Dr Kara is the best of the best at his job,and his staff are very professional and friendly too.I strongly recommend Sage for all dental work.

    First time here at Sage Dental. The office is very modern and has the latest technology in Dental Equipment. All the staff were very friendly and informative which made me feel welcome. I have a difficult case needing many tooth extractions and was very stressed and worried when I arrived. When I left their office I was relaxed and relieved about my situation. Dr. Shafia Kara was extremely informative. He took the time to explain every issue in detail and answered all my questions. I am so glad I came to Sage Dental. I would highly recommend them for your dental needs.

    After getting options from multiple different dentists, I ultimately went with Dr. Kara at Sage Dental and I couldn’t be happier! My Invisalign treatment went as planned and with no surprises. I enjoy going to Sage Dental and find that the dental assistant Taeya was comforting and very supportive along my 2 year Invisalign journey. I was recommended to Sage Dental by a friend and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family! 5 stars!

    With previous bad experiences at other Dentists and high anxiety going to Dental Offices. My first visit to Sage was absolutely amazing. I felt relaxed, well cared for and every step and process was well explained to me. From the front of house staff, the hygienists and the Doctors. Everyone I dealt with was so kind and understanding of my fears.I will be back again
