Composite fillings are dental restorations that are used to aesthetically restore damaged teeth. If a tooth suffers from minor decay or fractures, we may suggest a composite dental filling. Composite fillings are made from composite resin, which is a durable material available in a wide variety of shades. Our skilled dentist will match the color of the composite resin to the natural shade of your teeth to ensure that your dental restoration looks natural and blends in with your smile. Another advantage of composite resin is that it forms a bond with your natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and protecting it from future damage.
In most cases, a composite dental filling in Manlius, New York can be completed in only one simple visit to our dental office. First, Dr. Brandon R. Magill will remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth, being careful to leave as much original tooth structure as possible. He will clean the tooth, then fill it with composite resin. After sculpting the resin to fit your tooth and your bite, he will harden the filling by using a special light. When your composite filling is completed, no one will be able to tell that your tooth was damaged! For more information on the benefits of composite fillings, please call us today.
