The benefits of composite white fillings for tooth decay

If you experience tooth decay, it’s important to seek treatment at the Red Hill Dental Practice in Red Hill, Victoria. We offer tooth-coloured fillings that can help restore the affected teeth. Using a material known as composite resin bonding, the dentists at our practice can not only stop areas of decay from becoming deeper and larger but can do so in a way that is aesthetic and natural-looking.

Using composite resin bonding for chipped, cracked, or decayed tooth treatment

Composite resin bonding, sometimes known as dental bonding, is not only used for treating cavities. Our dentists will also use this material to address aesthetic imperfections of the smile, including gapped or broken teeth. The material can be applied to a prepared tooth, shaped into place, cured using a specialised curing light, and then filed down and polished to appear just like the natural tooth enamel, disguising issues within the smile. It can be used for back or front teeth fillings while remaining indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. This makes it a reliable, effective, fast, and affordable way to address areas of the smile that might require additional treatment.

What are the benefits of composite resin fillings?

When you choose tooth-coloured fillings for areas of decay in the smile, or if you are considering composite resin as a material to cover imperfections less expensively than porcelain veneers, you may find that this treatment has several advantages. Composite resin fillings are:

  • Strong and long-lasting.
  • Aesthetic in nature, looking just like natural tooth enamel.
  • Require less time compared to porcelain restorations, which need to be fabricated in a lab.
  • Noninvasive and conservative.
  • Relatively inexpensive when compared with other treatments.
