Our husband and wife team at Kelley Family Dental Center is committed to ensuring patients can repair teeth that require further assistance to ensure a healthy and fully functioning smile! In many cases, our team may use composite fillings for areas of tooth decay or as a dental bonding solution.

What is a composite restoration?

Dentists often use composite resin to restore a person’s smile. This material is commonly used to create tooth-colored fillings. The filling is placed when a patient has a cavity or an area of decay. Its purpose is to fill the hole created by the decay, protect the tooth from infection, and prevent further complications. It’s crucial for patients to have fillings placed as soon as possible to avoid additional issues from occurring. Additionally, fillings can stop decay from spreading deeper into the tooth.

How can composite restorations fix chipped, cracked, and worn teeth?

Another use for composite resin material is in a dental procedure called “dental bonding.” This procedure involves using the resin to reconstruct an area of the tooth, curing it, polishing it, and making it look like natural tooth enamel. As a result, composite resin is a great option for repairing chipped, cracked, and worn teeth.
