Dental Fillings Pembroke Pines FL
Our dental fillings can help restore your smile with our new bonding technologies and natural tooth styles.
A composite filling is a tooth-colored resin, used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth. Porcelain veneers usually require three trips to the dentist, one for consultation and the other two to make and apply the veneers.
Placement of the composite. Following preparation of the tooth, the dentist places the composite, using a light specialized to harden the composite. 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 composites. Aesthetics are the main advantage of composites since dentists 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. After receiving a composite, a patient may experience postoperative sensitivity. Also, the shade of the composite can change slightly if the patient drinks tea, coffee or other staining foods. Composites tend to wear out sooner than silver fillings in larger cavities, although they hold up as well in small cavities.
