Composite Fillings and Bonding
Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, tooth-colored fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Since they are tooth-colored and match the shade of your natural teeth, they look more natural than other filling materials does. You'll be able to smile, talk, and eat with confidence.
Composite fillings are durable solutions to common damaged tooth issues, including:
- Broken teeth
- Cracked Teeth
- Decayed Teeth
- Worn Teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Composite Filling Procedure
Composite fillings are typically administered in one appointment. The affected tooth is numbed, cleaned, and prepared for the filling material. The pre-determined filling material will be placed, shaped, and polished to restore your tooth to its original state.
Chipped, misaligned, stained, or cracked teeth can be quickly and easily be fixed with dental bonding. During the dental bonding process, the dentist uses a durable, tooth-colored composite resin to fill cracks and gaps, reshape teeth, and conceal stains to restore your smile's natural beauty. After applying thin layers of the bonding material to the area, the resin is cured using a specialized lamp this hardens the resin for strong, long-lasting results. Resin is custom tinted to match the exact shade of your teeth, the results are excellent, and the dental bonding is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The versatility of dental bonding is unsurpassed, and compared to other cosmetic procedures; the cost is relatively economical.
