When it comes to filling cavities, traditional dentists choose special metal alloys or amalgam to get the job done. However, with modern dental techniques, a much better option is now available for holes caused by tooth decay – composite fillings in Jupiter. This dental solution has many unique benefits.
Composite resin fillings are made of a combination of ceramic and plastic that are applied in layers on your tooth. The dentist uses a special curing light to harden each layer before smoothing out its tooth-colored surface and polishing to prevent premature wear and tear. More and more people choose composite resin fillings because they closely resemble your natural tooth’s look and feel.
Did you know that amalgam fillings require the removal of a large portion of your tooth? More drilling can weaken the tooth’s overall structure. With composite resin fillings, only a small portion of your tooth has to be removed.
Your dentist can apply composite resin fillings as overlays or onlays. They will then place a bonding agent before inserting the onlay. As it hardens, it bonds with the tooth and strengthens it.
We will use a special light to harden the filling’s bonding agent faster. Within a matter of seconds, it is cured and hardened.
The dentist can use composite resin applications to repair the cracks and chips on your teeth. Thanks to their durability, fast bonding process, and natural appearance, they can seamlessly give you the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
Since composite fillings also work to insulate your teeth from extreme temperatures, it greatly reduces tooth sensitivity each time you consume hot and cold foods and beverages. However, immediately following the procedure, temporary tooth sensitivity may still be experienced.
