When it comes to enhancing or restoring your smile, we offer the most preferred dental materials available. Unlike metal or amalgam fillings, composite fillings match the color of your teeth and offer the perfect balance between beauty and function. For this cosmetic dentistry treatment, Riverwood Dental uses composite, tooth-colored fillings as an ideal choice for repairing an area of decay as well as fixing minor tooth damage. Composite resin can also address a variety of aesthetic concerns, such as discoloration and small gaps.
Beyond their valued versatility in restoration and cosmetics, composite fillings are also highly durable and discreet. Composite resin blends in with your natural tooth structure for a seamless and natural-looking restoration. This is why it is often a material used to address imperfections in the front of your smile. When choosing tooth-colored fillings at Riverwood Dental, you can expect a painless and rewarding experience. With minimal time in the dental chair, we can deliver a long-lasting improvement to your smile and dental health.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a unique ceramic and plastic mixture that bonds directly to the surface of the tooth. A dentist applies the material in layers and hardens it under a special curing light. Finally, the composite resin is polished for ideal protection and durability. It is a brief and painless procedure that can reverse the effects of a damaged or unsightly tooth. Best of all, composite resin can be customized to match the exact shade of your surrounding teeth!
Our tooth-colored dental fillings deliver significant advantages over metal fillings, which contain mercury and can blacken or expand with age. Composite restorations do not contain metal and can mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth. Whether it is a minor chip on a front tooth or larger crack on a back molar, we have the preferred materials and expertise to restore your smile back to health and beauty.
