Aesthetic Composite Resin Restorations

What are aesthetic composite resin restorations?

Aesthetic composite resin restorations restore the structure of a damaged tooth. Composite restorations are versatile and can be used in a variety of dental restorations such as dental fillings, composite veneers, and inlays, onlays, and overlays. The overall goal of a composite restoration is to renew the tooth’s function and give it a natural-looking appearance.

Composite fillings or white fillings are a dental treatment option for decayed teeth. In most cases, the dentist will match the shade of your white filling to the surrounding teeth.

The material used for your white fillings is a bio-compatible composite resin. It is a visually appealing option compared to traditional silver (amalgam) fillings.

Another treatment option using composite resins is composite veneers. Your dentist can address tooth flaws, including small cracks, chips or gaps with this treatment option.

OVERVIEW

YOUR FIRST CONSULT

At your first visit, your dentist will assess your situation. Our team might have to take images such as x-rays and a 3D OPG scan to further assess your teeth. Sometimes your dentist will be able to perform the treatment instantly. In other cases, he will give you a customised treatment plan for you to take home.

Composite Restoration Treatment Process

If one or multiple teeth show decay you may require composite fillings (white filling). Your dentist will clean the site of debris, plaque and superficial stains. Then, our team will determine the ideal shade to match your existing teeth. Afterwards, your dentist will remove the calculus or old restoration.

In the next step, your dentist will bond the composite material to the remaining healthy tissue of your tooth. He will then shape and polish the composite restoration to ensure it looks natural and feels comfortable for you.

Composite restorations act like your natural teeth. This means, they can also fracture, chip, and break like your normal teeth. This type of restoration can last for a prolonged period of time depending on a variety of factors such as your diet and your oral health habits. All foods and drinks that can stain your natural teeth can also stain your restorations.

However, you can expand the longevity of your composite resin restorations by following a good oral hygiene routine. This includes brushing twice daily and flossing or using interdental brushes at least once a day.

In addition, it is important that you attend your regular dental check-ups. These will help to keep your restorations in good shape. Your dentist may also be able to re-polish your composite veneers to expand their lifespan.
