Light Care Composite Filling

Light care composite filling is a tooth filling made from a mixture of plastic and glass materials. It is used to repair teeth that are damaged or decayed. Most patients prefer this tooth filling as it easily matches the color of the patient's natural teeth. 

These fillings are easily bound to the tooth surface, which helps strengthen the tooth and reduce the risk of future damage. However, light care composite filling is a bit expensive compared to other dental fillings and may not suit all types of tooth damage. 

What is the cost of a Light Care Composite Filling?

The light care composite filling cost in Pakistan ranges between 4000-7000 PKR. However, the cost of treatment depends on the dentist chosen and the number of teeth undergoing the filling procedure. 

What diagnosis leads to Light Care Composite Filling?

The following diagnosis may lead to light care composite filling:

  • Dental decay or cavity 

  • Chipped or fractured teeth

  • Old worn-out fillings

What is the procedure for Light Care Composite Filling?

If you are having light care composite filling, the dentist will carry out the dental procedure in the following ways:

  • The dentist will begin by numbing the tooth and the surrounding area under treatment. For this, local anesthesia will be used.

  • After numbing, a dental drill or laser will be used to remove the decayed part of the tooth.

  • The cavity is free of dental decay and will be cleaned and shaped using dental instruments. 

  • Your tooth surface will be made rough by applying a special gel. This rough surface will strengthen the bondage of the light care composite material to the tooth.  

  • Using a strong adhesive, the dentist will apply a composite material to your tooth.

  • Laser light is applied to this composite material to harden it.

  • Ultimately, the dentist will shape and polish the filling to match its color with the surrounding teeth.

What are the risks & complications associated with Light Care Composite Filling?

Light care composite filling is considered safe and effective for repairing a decayed or damaged tooth. Sometimes potential risks and complications might occur in the patients, including:

  • Allergic reactions

  • Sensitivity

  • Discoloration

  • Filling shrinkage

  • Tooth chipping or cracking 

  • Infection

  • Postoperative pain

  • Overhangs or open margins

  • These sensitivity symptoms will diminish soon as the filling adjusts to the new restoration.
