Fillings That Match Your Tooth Color

Long Lasting Fillings That Match Your Tooth Color

At Murphy Dental, we offer composite fillings as a way to help restore damaged teeth. Composite fillings are made of a tooth-colored resin material that is bonded to the tooth.
Typical uses for Composite Fillings
  • Tooth filling for cavities
  • Dental filling for minor tooth cracks
  • Chipped Tooth restoration
They are a preferred filling over an amalgam filling, because they are custom-made to match the color of your teeth, so they look natural and blend in with your teeth. This is especially helpful for teeth that are visible near the front of your mouth. The quality material that we use has a chameleon effect, which allows the composite material to blend three shades light or darker, in order to continuously blend with your natural tooth structure over time.

Composite Fillings: Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does it Take to Get a Composite Filling?

When you come into our Fort Collins dental office to place a composite filling on a tooth, you can count on the entire procedure taking about 30 minutes or so. This will vary somewhat based on the cavity as well as the location of the tooth. However, placing a composite filling in a cavity is a relatively quick process.

How Long Do Composite Fillings Last?

Like most restorative dental work, composite fillings probably won't last for a lifetime, but they will last for a long time.

What are Composite Fillings Made of?

Composite resin fillings are made of a tooth-colored plastic resin material that is combined with glass or quartz fibers. The plastic material is used to fill in the cavity, while the glass fibers help to strengthen the filling.

Are Composite Fillings Safe?

Yes, composite fillings are safe. Composite resin has been used in dentistry for many years and is a well-established and reliable dental material. Even if you end up swallowing your composite filling many years down the road, it is safe for your body and will pass through your system with no health impacts.

Is it Painful to Get a Composite Filling?

No. For most dental procedures involving composite fillings, all that is required is a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and gum in the area that the dentist will be working on.

If you have dental anxiety or are having a more substantial dental restorative procedure requiring multiple fillings or dental work, we have sedation options to keep your whole body comfortable and relaxed while at our Fort Collins Dental Office.

How Much Does it Cost to Get a Cavity Filled?

The pricing may vary somewhat based on the type of cavity and the work required to restore the tooth. Most dental insurance plans will at least partially cover the cost required for dental fillings.

Our Fort Collins dentist office is familiar with all types of dental insurance plans. Give us a call with your insurance information, and we will let you know exactly what your insurance company will cover.
