Composite Restorations (White Filling)
If you need a filling, composite fillings (White filling) can work wonders for you. What is better than Using materials that match the shade, translucency and the texture of your teeth? Gaps between teeth can be closed, spots and discolorations can be eliminated, and your self-confidence can be enhanced through the improved appearance of your smile. The composite materials that are bonded to your teeth have a completely natural look, and allow you to eat, bite and chew as you normally would. Tooth bonding is a fairly simple procedure that rarely takes more than one office visit, other than in the most unique of circumstances. Composite bonding is excellent for small defects in the teeth: spots, chips, or gaps between teeth.
With composite fillings, Bentleigh Dentist can close spaces between teeth, lengthen smaller misshapen teeth, or whiten stained or dark teeth. Bonding for teeth involves the use of composite resin tooth-colored filling material. This material can be used on the anterior (front) teeth or posterior (back) teeth. Although not as durable as ceramic, composite works wonders for most minor procedures.
