Our composite resin advanced materials aren't just good for repairing teeth, they can also be used to change the colour or shape of a tooth easily. The procedure is simple and completed in just one appointment. Your dentist will choose a shade of composite that best matches your tooth. After removing decay, a special curing light is used to harden each layer of filling material. The filling will be shaped to fit your tooth and polished so that it remains smooth and resistant to staining. One of the advantages of composites is that with a good colour match, it's almost impossible to see the tooth has been restored. And because these fillings bond directly to the enamel, they require less removal of healthy tooth material and they are strong and resist wear well.
