Composite Resin Filling

We use the latest technology for our cavity fillings. This "White filling" is technically called a composite resin.

You may have heard of it as bonding. Composites are made up of a quartz resin and usually contain a light sensitive agent. These light cured composites are extremely cosmetic and most often bonded into place.

They can be used in both the front of the mouth as well as in the back of the mouth. In order to bond a filling material to your tooth it is first necessary to remove the decay, prepare the tooth, and then to condition the enamel and dentin.

Once conditioned, a thin resin is applied which bonds to the etched surface. The bond strength of these fillings is incredibly strong. Bonding increases the strength of these restorations far beyond those of only a short time ago.
