Composite Fillings

Call Legacy Dental DFW today to schedule your dental composite fillings and be on your way to a brighter smile!

Dental composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, work well for small to midsize fillings because the material is both resistant and durable to the stress of chewing and pressure. Dental composite fillings can be used for back or front teeth. Dental composite is a good way to match with the natural teeth around the filling, giving an overall natural and aesthetic look.

After removing the cavity/decay from the tooth, your Legacy Dental Dentist will place the dental composite filling in layers, typically using a light specialized to harden each layer. When the process is finished, the dentist will shape the dental composite fillings to fit the teeth. The dentist then polishes the dental composite fillings to prevent staining and early wear.
