A composite restoration is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile and resolve decay that you have developed on your teeth. During this process, our skilled dentist will place a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty like when first applied, she can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. A composite restoration typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be quick and comfortable.

Our dentist may recommend a composite restoration in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth near your gumline to prevent food and debris accumulation between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your teeth.
