The ideal way to correct problems with minor decay, discoloration, or chips can be corrected with the help of composite resin fillings.

Currently, composite resin is one of the most advanced materials used in modern dentistry. This advanced material was originally created as an alternative to old fashioned metal filling materials that may contain mercury. Today, composite resin is not only used for a multitude of procedures in dentist’s offices around the globe, but it is incredibly durable and malleable, making it the best material for small tooth repairs, fillings and more.

Dr. Dinh and his team at Dream Smiles Dental will first choose the perfect shade of composite resin to match your teeth. Much of the time, even the patient can’t tell where the natural tooth ends and the composite resin begins. Once the resin is applied to the tooth, a curing light will be used to harden the material. The entire procedure can usually be finished that same day and the resin can last up to a decade. The team at Dream Smiles Dental will gladly answer any of your questions regarding this procedure.
