Things to Know About Composite Resin

Posted on 2/20/2019 by Beautiful Smiles Office
Things to Know About Composite ResinMost of us are familiar with dental fillings, and some of us may have some in our mouth right now! Having fillings is highly common, and technology has come a long way since the introduction of amalgam fillings over 150 years ago.

There is a lot of misinformation about fillings out there, however, leading to undue confusion about the different materials available. We'd like to clear up some of that confusion by sharing with you some facts about composite resin.

Why Do I Need Composite Resin?

If amalgam is so reliable and has been around so long, then why is composite resin so highly recommended?

Sure, amalgam is strong and sturdy and great for biting surfaces, but composite resin is no slouch. Take a look at these facts about composite:

•  Composite resin is made up of a mixture of silica-like glass or quartz blended into a resinous material that can be stained to perfectly match your existing teeth.
•  Composite resin requires less drilling than amalgam, making the overall experience less stressful for our patients.
•  Composite resin is much more attractive, allowing us to perform extensive repairs on more visible, front teeth.
•  Composite resin bonds easily to your teeth and is often built up in layers, using a special light to harden each layer. That allows us to preserve more of your tooth versus amalgam.
•  Composite resin isn't as sensitive to temperature changes like amalgam, which helps keep your tooth from breaking or becoming damaged.
•  While composite resin is oftentimes more expensive than amalgam, in many ways it outperforms amalgam, making it a highly reliable and recommended material for your dental work.

When you schedule an appointment at our office, our highly trained and professional staff will thoroughly assess your mouth and make skilled recommendations on how to protect and preserve your teeth.

Please give our office a call today to schedule a full dental exam with a cleaning to help keep your smile bright for years to come!
