Cosmetic And Restorative Benefits Of Composite Resin
Posted September 7, 2016 by Wager-Evans Dental
The materials your dentist uses to take care of your teeth matter. The right product can be beneficial to your oral health, while minimizing the risk of a negative effect on your appearance. Composite resin has become a reliable material for cosmetic dental work, and restorative treatments. With dental bonding, your dentist can make your tooth look more attractive by using composite resin to cover chips and cracks, and discoloration. A tooth-colored filling, which also uses composite resin, can bond directly to your tooth and mimic your enamel’s look. This makes it a good functional and cosmetic solution for a cavity treatment.
Dental bonding involves the application of composite resin to take care of any number of cosmetic issues with a tooth. Is a damaged tooth affected by small chips or cracks? Bonding can help make it look healthy again. Discoloration after damage can also be taken care of. While this material is less durable than porcelain veneers, you can still enjoy long-lasting results with dental bonding. The treatment is also popular because it can be performed in just one appointment.
A dental filling is used when your dentist treats a smaller cavity – for larger cavities, a filling may not be strong enough, so a dental crown is used instead. A composite resin filling replaces lost dental material, and helps make your tooth whole again. Metal fillings are more conspicuous, and unlike composite resin, metal will not bond directly to your tooth.
