At Elegant Smiles, we stay at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry. Therefore, when it comes to the materials we use to repair decay or minor tooth damage, we proudly offer composite resin. Composite fillings are a tooth-colored material that offer superior results in both aesthetics and durability. While composite resin is the most preferred choice for filling a cavity, our dentists also use it to address slight imperfections in your smile. If you have small gaps, chips, cracks or discoloration within your smile, consider this form of tooth-colored bonding as an easy and very affordable solution.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a white, plastic and glass mixture that bonds to the surface of the affected tooth. Unlike past amalgam fillings, composite fillings do not contain any type of metal or mercury, which make it a safer and more attractive solution. Our Brookhaven office does offer amalgam (silver) filling removal for patients who wish to replace their fillings with tooth-colored composite resin.
Whether we are repairing an area of decay or reshaping a disfigured tooth, one of our dentists will apply the composite resin in layers. The material is then hardened under a special curing light and polished for lasting protection. The entire process can be performed within minutes. The result will be a seamless blend against your natural teeth so that you can feel confident in your restorative and cosmetic improvement.
