Maintaining your natural looking smile
Composite white fillings are used to correct a range of blemishes such as chips, cracks, and close spaces between teen and as a natural looking alternative to metal fillings.
Dental composite is made of synthetic resin combined with other restorative materials. It is colour matched to your natural tooth enamel and can be used to repair minor chips and cracks close gaps and cover permanent stains.
The composite material is like a paste. It is placed in layers and sculpted into shape and hardened with a special light, which bonds the material to the front of the teeth to improve tooth colour, size and shape.
Not only do you benefit from the aesthetics of composite veneers, but they are strong, require a minimal amount of natural tooth to be removed, and can improve your oral function and good oral health in a single appointment.
Unlike metal, with composite resin fillings we are able to treat decayed teeth much more conservatively. The composite material achieved a greater bond to your tooth structure, so less tooth needs to be removed.
Additionally, the material is extremely strong and does not contract and expand with heat and cold as traditional fillings can do over time. This minimises the possibility of tooth sensitivity, leakage and fracture of the restoration.
The composite material is placed in layers, hardened and sculpted to the natural shape of your tooth, providing a completely natural appearance.
