Composite Resin Fillings Enhance Your Smile’s Beauty

 A composite resin filling is designed to closely match the natural appearance of tooth enamel. This allows patients to receive high-quality care without sacrificing the beauty of their smiles. Composite fillings are used to treat cavities in conjunction with a number of procedures related to cosmetic dentistry in Pensacola, FL. Chips, cracks, and tooth fractures can all be addressed with the help of this versatile material. Not only does composite resin have a superior appearance, it is hard, tough, and will last a long time without discoloring. 

Why Choose Composite Resin Fillings?

There are two primary kinds of filling materials used in dentistry: composite resin and silver amalgam. Both of these materials have advantages to offer. Your dentist in Pensacola, FL, can tell you more about these two materials and how they can support your treatment. Because composite resin fillings closely match natural tooth enamel, this is the preferred material when working on visible tooth surfaces. Resin fillings can be used as part of a course of cosmetic dentistry work. Patients might need some resin material in addition to teeth whitening to achieve the results they want.

 

 How Composite Resin Fillings Are Used

 

This material is used to treat many different dental concerns, including:

 

·       Applying to teeth that have been chipped, broken, or cracked

·       Closing the gap between one tooth and another

·       Filling holes in decaying teeth

·       Building up tooth surfaces that have been worn down

 

A patient usually receives resin fillings during the course of a single appointment. A numbing anesthetic is applied to the tooth being treated so the dentist can remove the decayed portion. The space is then carefully cleaned, and the resin is prepared. Once in place, the resin is shaped and polished.
