At Atlantic Dental Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we offer tooth-colored fillings, so nothing takes away from the beauty of your smile.
What Are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored (composite resin) fillings became a popular choice in the early 1990s. They are made from a ceramic and plastic compound. Composite resin fillings come in numerous shades to match your natural teeth. The materials used in today’s composite resins are a safe and effective filling agent.
Composite resin not only provides an attractive solution for filling teeth once a cavity has been removed, but with improvements in materials over the last decade, composites are stable and long lasting as long as new decay does not develop or other dental conditions do not arise.
How Do Composite Restorations Work?
Once the decay is gently removed from your tooth, one of our skilled dentists will fill the area with composite resin that matches your natural tooth, curing it with a special light. Then, the material will be shaped and polished to create a seamless relationship between the filling and your tooth.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Another benefit of composite fillings is that they can be used for cosmetic dental bonding. Dental bonding is the least invasive of cosmetic procedures because minimal prep work is required. Usually, composite resin is used to add to your existing tooth structure in order to repair flaws or fix your tooth. The entire process can be completed in just a single office visit.
Dental bonding utilizes the same tooth-colored material we use for fillings. Bonding procedures can correct minor aesthetic flaws such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Enamel loss
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Worn or shortened teeth
- Dental recession
Cosmetic dental bonding is extremely affordable and allows our patients to make aesthetic improvements to their teeth with minimal prep to their teeth and at a reasonable price.
