What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is the material we use in our dental fillings, as it is the preferred method by patients. Composite resin is a tooth-colored (white) mixture made up of plastic and glass. It successfully repair areas of decay in the teeth as well as restores teeth that have been damaged by trauma. Dr. Patel also offers composite resin as a simple way to fix aesthetic flaws, as it can change the color of a tooth or reshape it. To support our mission to provide the safest, most long-term solutions for our patients, we prefer composite fillings over metal (or mercury) fillings. Their natural aesthetics and enhanced durability are also significant advantages.
During your tooth-colored filling procedure, the composite well be placed in layers. A special light is used to harden each layer before the composite is custom shaped and fit to your tooth. Lastly, Dr. Patel will polish the your filling for added protection. At Cosmetic Dentistry of Hayward, we respect your comfort needs at all times. We provide sedation dentistry and use the anesthesia wand, which can dramatically reduce discomfort during the injection of local anesthetic.
