tooth coloured composite restoration Introduction:
A ‘composite filling ‘ is a tooth-coloured plastic and glass mixture used to restore the decayed tooth. Tooth coloured composite restoration used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth. Here at Richardsons, we provide all your necessities for tooth-colored restoration. Dr. Sunil Richardson and his team are the ones to approach these.
How is a composite placed?
Following preparation, the dentist places the composites in layers, typically using a light specialized to harden each layer. When the process is finished, the dentist will shape the composite to fit the tooth. The dentist then polishes the composite to prevent staining and early wear.
Advantages of tooth coloured composite restoration:
- “Aesthetics” is the main advantage of composites, since the dentist can blend shades to create a color nearly identical to that of the actual tooth.
- composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
Disadvantages of composites:
- After receiving a composite, a patient may experience postoperative sensitivity.
- Composite can change slightly if the patient drinks tea, coffee or other staining foods.
- Composites tend to wear out sooner than silver fillings.
