COMPOSITE RESIN FILLINGS

A composite resin tooth filling is typically made of powdered glass and acrylic resin. Composite is a tooth-coloured alternative which is commonly used in place of amalgam fillings. The procedure is completed under local anaesthetic.

Composite resin is suitable for small to medium restorations around the mouth, and is the one of the best solutions to improve the appearance and shape of chipped or worn front teeth.

If you are interested in improving your smile or the appearance of a specific tooth, composite resin is an affordable alternative to veneers and other orthodontic work.

Please speak with one of our dentists to determine whether this cosmetic restoration option is right for you. He or she can give you a preview of the outcome by applying composite resin build-ups to a model. Any further adjustments can then be made before starting the procedure.

Our skilled dentists take the time to perfectly shade match the resin, then shape and cure it to your teeth.

Finally, the composite resin is polished to achieve a precise shape and smooth, shiny finish.
