Tooth Colored Fillings
What is a filling?
Composite resin is a white filling material that functions to restore a tooth back to ideal shape and size after a cavity, crack, or old failing existing restoration has been removed.
First, after profound local anesthesia, the decay, crack or failing existing restoration is removed. Next, composite resin is used to fill the void created in the affected tooth or teeth. After the resin has been applied, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Composite resin is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
