- Matches your teeth’s color
- Fixes chips and cracks
- Prevents tooth decay
- Replaces amalgam (metal) fillings
Initially, your dentist will analyze your teeth to look for signs of tooth decay. Then, the area requiring treatment will be numbed with local anesthesia. Tooth decay is removed with a drill or an air abrasion instrument. After all decay is removed, the composite resin fills the now cleaned out tooth.
The composite resin is tooth colored and is hardened by a low dentistry light. Any excess material will be removed, and your teeth will be cavity-free!
