Did you know that you can fix small flaws or hide discolorations in your teeth in as little as one visit to a dentist? Composite fillings are white colored resin that can be used for a variety of cosmetic repairs, blending in with the color of your teeth. At Dental Care Acworth, we offer composite fillings to repair teeth with white resin for a beautiful, attractive smile.
Composite fillings are a cosmetic dental treatment that can be used to replace tooth material in repairs and cosmetic procedures. If you need a cavity filled, composite resin can be used instead of amalgam to blend into your smile. However, traditional fillings are not the only use of composite resin. It can be used to change the shape of a tooth or repair a chip. Often it is used to fill a gap between teeth by adding a small amount of resin to each tooth. This material is durable and versatile, only taking one visit to change a variety of flaws in your smile.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a putty-like substance that can be shaped and hardened to repair teeth. It is usually made from plastics and ceramics, color-matched to blend in with your teeth color. The putty can be applied in layers, filling in missing tooth material or covering flaws. A special light is used to cure the resin, hardening it in place in just a few minutes. Once cured, it is sanded and polished to blend in with the surface of your teeth.
Composite fillings are an affordable cosmetic service that can fix many dental issues that can affect the appearance of your smile. Like porcelain veneers they can hide many different flaws, but the cost is much less and the process is quicker.
