At Financial District Dentistry, we are committed to offering the most advanced and aesthetically pleasing dental treatments available and are pleased to offer composite dental fillings in San Francisco, California, as a superior choice for restoring teeth affected by decay or damage while maintaining the natural beauty of your smile. 

What Are Composite Dental Fillings?

Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are made from a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles. They are designed to match the color of your natural teeth, providing a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing option compared to traditional metal fillings. 

The Advantages of Composite Fillings

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Perfectly matched to the color of your natural teeth, composite fillings blend seamlessly into your smile.
  • Durability: Strong enough to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, making them suitable for use in small to mid-sized restorations.
  • Tooth Structure Conservation: Requires less tooth structure to be removed when compared with amalgam fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth.
  • Versatility: Can be used to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth, in addition to filling cavities. 


The Process of Receiving Composite Fillings

  • Removal of Decay: The decayed or affected portion of the tooth is removed.
  • Preparation: The space is cleaned and prepared for the filling.
  • Filling Application: The composite material is applied in layers, using a light specialized to harden each layer.
  • Shaping and Polishing: The filling is shaped to match the tooth’s natural contours and then polished to prevent staining and early wear.
