Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, You may be a good candidate for composite resins. Composite resins (also known as tooth colored fillings) offer a non-invasive way to improve your smile. A composite resin is a mixture of microscopic ceramic and glass particles dispersed in a plastic resin that can be bonded to teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. The fact that the resin is bonded means that a seal is formed to reduce the chance of leakage, which is common with silver fillings. For years, silver/mercury was the primary material used by dentists to fill cavities. Today, tooth-colored restorations are superior, both in appearance and in durability. You deserve only the best, which is why Dr. Tauschek offers tooth-colored restorations. If you have any concerns about the appearance of your teeth, give us a call for an evaluation to see if bonding with composite resin will give you the smile you’ve always wanted, along with the enhanced self-confidence that goes along with it.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth without reducing the structure of the tooth in most cases.
