What is a Composite Resin?
Cavities can be repaired with a variety of filling materials. At Marietta Smiles, we offer the choice that is preferred by both patients and dentists: composite resin. Composite resin is a long-term repair solution for tooth decay and minor tooth damage. It is a white plastic and glass mixture that mimics the natural shape and color of your teeth. Composite resin is most often used in restorative dentistry, but it can also provide cosmetic correction. Composite resin can make minor changes in the color, shape or form of your teeth. This white filling material is known for offering improved long-term safety and better aesthetics compared to amalgam or metal fillings.
During your composite filling procedure, we will place the filling material on the affected tooth in layers. A specialized light is then used to harden each layer before it is custom shaped to your tooth. As a final step, we will smooth and polish the tooth so that it is protected against stains and early wear. Before you leave, our dentist will make sure your filling feels comfortable and looks natural.
