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.
