With teeth-coloured composite resin, you can restore your smile discreetly, and flash those pearly whites confidently!
What is dental composite resin?
With composite resin, the days of being conscious about metal restorations are long gone. These attractive alternatives to amalgam restorations are tooth-coloured materials generally made of acrylic resin, reinforced with powdered glass quartz, silica or other ceramic particles, making them almost indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Composite resins are used in dental restorations such as dental fillings, crowns and bridges, and veneers. They can be used on both your front and back teeth.
Benefits of Tooth-Coloured Composite Resin
Tooth-coloured composite resin provides plenty of benefits over conventional restorative materials. These include:
Enhances the aesthetics of your smile
Since composite resin can be matched to the shade and shape of your natural teeth, it provides a seamless, natural-looking finish that enhances your smile.
Minimal amount of tooth is removed
Unlike other dental restorations, composite resin preserves more of your natural tooth. Only the damaged or decayed part of your tooth will be removed.
Teeth-coloured composite resin can be used in various restorative treatments, including fillings, bonding, veneers and crowns. They treat a range of dental conditions, from chipped and worn-down teeth to decayed teeth.
Strong and sturdy
Since composite resin can adhere directly to the tooth enamel, it hardens quickly and provides strong and sturdy restorations that make chewing and biting effortless.
How are Composite Resin Restorations Placed?
The restoration process of composite resin will depend on the type of restoration you need. However, the general process includes the following steps.
During the initial consultation, our dentists will carry out a thorough assessment of your smile. We will also take x-rays of your teeth to understand the severity of decay or damage. We will create a personalised treatment plan and may even use digital imaging to help you preview what your new smile will look like before treatment even begins.
Preparation of Tooth
Your dentist will prepare the tooth for composite resin restorations by cleaning and disinfecting it. This will be performed under a local anaesthetic to numb the area and relieve you of pain.
Once your tooth is ready, the dentist will apply the composite resin in layers and harden each layer using a special light. The composite resin will then be shaped to ensure it blends with the natural contours of your tooth. If a composite restoration is being fabricated, we will meticulously craft your new restoration and apply it.
Finally, your dentist will examine your restored tooth, make final adjustments, and polish your tooth. Your bespoke smile is now complete!
