Repairing Teeth With Resin Restorations

When you have a tooth that is damaged or misshapen, or if you have permanent teeth or dental fillings, then we can offer improvement in only one visit! Composite resin can repair and restore your teeth, with results that blend with your smile. Your Brookfield, WI, family dentist talks about the benefits of treating your smile with composite resin!

The Benefits of Composite Resin

Composite resin is a metal-free material, which means it is safe for patients of all ages, from kids to adults, and the biocompatible nature means it can bond with the tooth structure, providing restoration that truly lasts. The material blends glass-like and acrylic-like particles, which we can then shade to blend with the rest of your tooth structure or your smile as a whole. The restoration can be removed and altered as needed in the future, and when in place they protect the tooth from cavities and other complications. Our team can use them in both cosmetic and restorative treatments.

Bonding

To offer cosmetic improvement, we can use composite resin in a bonding procedure. The treatment involves our team numbing the tooth and removing any decay before we etch the outer structure. We then apply the material in several layers, and sculpt the tooth as the material cures beneath a light. Finally, we polish it for a brighter appearance. With bonding, we can mask permanent teeth stains that could resist teeth whitening, or close embarrassing gaps between your teeth. The procedure can repair minor cracks and chips, lengthen worn down structure, and even correct misshapen teeth. For some, this means major transformation in only one visit.

Fillings

If you have a cavity, then we could use the same material to offer a restorative treatment, preventing decay from becoming an infection that threatens smile stability. When you notice tooth sensitivity or a toothache, come to see us for an exam. If we find a cavity, we can remove decay from the tooth and then apply the material in several layers, filling the decayed area to protect the tooth from worsening symptoms. The material bonds with the tooth and blends with it, so your restoration can last for years to come. Again, the process only takes one visit to complete!

If you have any questions about how we offer one-visit repair and cosmetic improvement using a lifelike and durable material, then contact our team to learn more about our resin restorations, and enjoy a better smile as a result.
