Dental work can change the appearance of your smile, especially if you have metal fillings. Amalgam fillings can make your teeth appear gray and make any repairs noticeable. At Clover Smile Studio, we offer white composite fillings for dental repairs, keeping your smile white and beautiful. Using special composite resin, we can fix dental issues and make changes to improve the appearance of your smile.
Composite fillings and dental bonding are two cosmetic dentistry options that use dental resin to repair your smile. This material can be used to replace tooth material that is lost when decay is removed or a tooth is damaged. It can also be used to change the shape of teeth to hide gaps or cover discolorations that are resistant to whitening. The white color of composite resin can be color-matched to your teeth, making it blend in with your smile for a natural appearance.
What is a Composite Resin?
Dental composite resin is formulated to create a white, durable surface for your teeth. This material is made from plastics and glass, and it is applied in a putty form to fill or enhance your teeth. Once applied in its soft form, the resin is hardened through a curing process using a special light. The procedure is quick and painless. Once hardened, the resin can be smoothed and blended with the tooth’s surface, creating an almost invisible repair to the tooth. Plus, composite resin does not contain mercury, a common ingredient in amalgam fillings which many people prefer to avoid.
Composite fillings and dental bonding can be an attractive option to keep your smile white and improve the overall appearance. Once the resin is cured, it is very durable. It can last for ten years or more. To learn more about composite fillings and cosmetic dental bonding using white resin, contact our office in Austin.
