The continuing research that is taking place to find better, longer lasting and more natural looking materials in dentistry has resulted in dentists and patients today having several choices when it comes to selecting materials used to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth.
Materials used for filling teeth must be able to withstand the force of chewing and some teeth have to withstand more pressure than others therefore the material used for a restoration will depend on the tooth that needs filling. Sometimes an inlay or crown may be required.
White fillings are made of composite resins , a mixture of acrylic resin and fine glass particles. They bond chemically to tooth structure, which can assist in strengthening the broken tooth.
The material is applied directly to your tooth in layers. Each layer is hardened with a special light.
The white filling is then carefully shaped to fit your tooth and then polished.
