A tooth-colored (composite) filling is used for cracked, chipped or stained teeth. It can reshape your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.
If you had cavities that were repaired with metal fillings in the past, a tooth-colored filling can be used to blend in your fillings with your other teeth. It is also used for covering stains and restoring teeth, giving you a more natural look.
Atlantic Dentistry makes this cosmetic dental procedure convenient and affordable for our patients. We have extended hours, and our staff will work with you to find a time that works best. We also have flexible payment options available. We accept CareCredit and will discuss any and all payment options with you.
The advantage of using composite resin is that it can strengthen the tooth structure, and the natural color blends in with your actual teeth. Your smile will look natural, and no one will know you had any cosmetic dental work performed. A composite resin is a putty that is the same color as your natural teeth, mostly made of a glass and plastic mixture.
When getting a composite filling, the dentist will prepare your tooth, and the resin is then placed in layers by using a light specialized to harden each layer. When the filling is complete, the dentist will shape it to look like your other teeth.
We want you to feel confident with your smile and your overall appearance. Contact Atlantic Dentistry today to set up a consultation, and see if this type of cosmetic procedure is right for you. We make scheduling flexible and convenient.
