If you are in need of a filling, composite resin (white fillings) is a great option to consider. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. If you have discolored or disfigured teeth that need reshaping, composites are a great way to make cosmetic improvements to your smile.
Composite Placement (Bonding: White Fillings)
First, we will prepare the tooth for placement. We will then place the composite on the tooth in layers, typically using a light specialized to harden each layer. After this process is completed, the composite will be shaped to fit the tooth. In order to prevent early wear and staining, we will finish by polishing the composite.
Advantages of Composite Fillings
The main advantage of composites is the appearance of the teeth. To create a color that is nearly identical to that of the actual tooth, we can blend shades that result in a perfect match. The bonding of composites (white fillings) to the tooth prevents breakage and insulates the tooth from excessive temperature changes by supporting the remaining tooth structure.
