Is Composite Dental Filling in Hollywood Smile Essential?

The way we look can affect our lives. Our smile is the first thing that people notice on the first encounter. Cosmetic dentistry is a word that has been used a lot in recent years and it refers to the procedures that make your teeth look aesthetically beautiful and perfect. Our teeth may not have a good appearance and our smile have lost its sparkle due to genetics, aging, food and drinks, smoking, and more factors. Cosmetic dentistry can make your smile look bright and beautiful.

Hollywood smile is a type of cosmetic dentistry that treats dental flaws and makes your smile look healthy and bright. It makes you feel confident about smiling and the way you look when you interact with others. One of the procedures that help having a Hollywood smile is composite dental fillings. Here, we are going to explain more on this subject and see whether they are necessary to use.

How is the Hollywood smile procedure?

Hollywood smile is a makeover of your smile that reconstructs teeth of both jaws through bleaching, veneers, implants, crowns, etc. Hollywood smile procedure often focuses on using veneers in order to hide all dental problems such as stains, chipping, and misalignments.

What are composite dental fillings?

Veneers are thin shells that are put on the front side of a tooth to improve its aesthetic features. Porcelain or composite are two major types of veneer used in the Hollywood smile procedure. Porcelains are customized shells that are made in a dental laboratory and are glued on the front side of teeth. Composite is a same-day treatment technique, which is applied to the tooth at the same visit.

Composite (tooth-colored) fillings are used to treat dental flaws. The decayed part of the tooth will be removed, cleaned, and then filled with the composite filling. Today, composite fillings with silver amalgam are the most common fillings used. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and can be matched with teeth color easily. Composite fillings are often used for:

  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed and worn teeth

One of the drawbacks of composite is that they are not permanent and should be replaced after some years.

How is the composite fillings procedure?

The procedure of using composite is a quick process, which is done in the first visit. In the first place, your dentist removes decay while your tooth is numb with a local anesthetic. The space should be completely cleaned and ready for the filling material. Your dentist may etch and bond the tooth. Your dentist must carefully choose the white shade that matches your teeth’ color.

Then the composite veneer is placed precisely on the intended spot and is shaped. Your dentist uses a high intensity light to dry and harden the composite material. Finally, they will polish and contour the tooth. The dentist will check your bite to see if you are comfortable chewing food. You may have a little sensitivity to heat and cold in the beginning, but it goes away quickly.

How long do composite fillings last?

Composite fillings are not permanent. They often need to be polished and replaced after some years. The life of these fillings depends on several factors. If they have been treated and taken care of well, they can last up to 10 years and even more.  Good oral hygiene, healthy eating habits, and regular dental visits will help extend the life of your composite fillings.

Composite fillings benefits

When you fill your tooth with composite, it can have several benefits. Some of the benefits are:

  • It will match the color of your teeth and help the aesthetic look of them
  • They can prevent future decay
  • It is a quick treatment and can be applied in the first visit
  • They have a natural appearance
  • It will provide support to a weak tooth
  • It prevents infections especially after a root canal
  • Improves tooth functioning by removing tooth pain
  • Gives the patient peace of mind due to the relatively high durability
  • The treatment is inexpensive

Composite Fillings Drawbacks

Only a few drawbacks can be named for composite fillings:

  • Shorter longevity compared to porcelain veneer
  • Risk of staining or deteriorating
  • Take longer to apply on teeth
  • Often more expensive than amalgam fillings

How long does it take to fill a tooth?

A dental filling composite usually takes about an hour or less, if the intended area is small. If multiple fillings are done, it can take a longer time. The direct composite filling will be finished at the first visit, however, if there is a case of indirect filling that needs to be made from an impression, the second visit will be needed. If you need to replace an old filling, the procedure may take the same time as your first filling, because the filling material needs to be drilled out and cleaned before your dentist refills the tooth.
