What are the different types composite restorations

Dental composite restorations use synthetic resins to make the damaged tooth whole again, while reinforcing its structure. Required when the damage is not severe enough as to need a crown, the composite is bonded to the tooth in different situations:

  • Filling
    • The decayed part of the tooth is taken out and replaced with the composite.
  • Inlay
    • Used with cavities too large for a filling. The inlay fits the exact shape of the hollow part in the tooth. 
  • Onlay
    • Very similar to an inlay except that it is used on the cusps (bumps at the top of the tooth).

We answer your most common questions about Bonding and White Fillings in Saint John

Many patients see their composite fillings lasting for about ten years. But if you take really great care of your fillings, they may be able to last you longer than that — and even a lifetime! In order to help your composite fillings last longer, you should always see your dentist twice a year for regular dental cleanings and exams, brush your teeth twice a day, floss every day, and eat a variety of healthy food to boost your oral health.

Following preparation, the composite is placed in layers, using a light specialised to harden each layer. When the process is finished, the composite is shaped to fit the tooth. It is then polished the composite to prevent staining and early wear.
