Dr. Tripthi Shetty and her team at Modern Dental Studio know that imperfections of the smile or the wrong dental materials can stand out, making patients feel self-conscious about how they look when they laugh, talk, and smile with others. This includes dental fillings. Some dentists today still use old materials to fill areas of decay, such as silver amalgam fillings. However, these have been considered unsafe and are also unsightly. Instead, our team focuses on using composite resin materials for dental fillings for a safer restoration and more attractive appearance to the natural tooth and smile. If you live in the East Brunswick, New Jersey area and want to speak to our professional about restoring areas of decay with white fillings, read on to learn more!
How composite resin fillings can improve your smile
Composite resin is a type of synthetic material used in dentistry to restore the function and appearance of teeth. This filling can repair cavities, cracked or chipped teeth, and misshapen teeth. Composite resin fillings are also used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of your smile.
What are the benefits of utilizing materials like composite resin for cavity fillings?
There are many advantages of composite resin fillings over traditional metal fillings. Composite resin fillings are made to match the color of your natural teeth, so they are less noticeable than metal fillings. These white fillings are also bonded to your tooth, which helps to support the structure of your tooth and prevents further damage. Additionally, composite resin fillings can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth, which can improve the overall appearance of your smile.
