Composite Resin: Repairing tooth is a work of art
We at Dr. Sunil International Dental Center believe in one important thing – If you are able to regain your lost confidence because of us that means we have done an excellent job. This comes in light with the various dental treatment options available with us. Composite Resin, the treatment which we will be discussing today, has turned out to be a savior for patients who have decayed, fractured or broken teeth.
It takes years of experience to understand the exact anatomy of tooth. Apart from this it is important for dentists to know which dental procedure can be done on which type of dental problems. Not to mention, when a dentist is treating or repairing your damaged teeth there has to be an artistic touch which helps in giving your teeth the natural look and feel. This is where Composite Resins or Composite Fillings play a vital role. They are tooth colored material which gets applied to the left over surfaces of teeth as it helps in replacing the lost tooth structure. The replacement is done such a way that it becomes difficult to know whether they are composite fillings or natural teeth structure.
Benefits of Composite Resin
Not only does composite resin matches the physical attributes of a natural teeth but also provides strength in the entire process. The modern composite resin has a quality of bonding with two important elements of teeth – dentin and enamel. The biggest advantage of composite resin is that they can be used to restore the teeth directly which means that it can be applied directly to your teeth in just one visit. So here comes the other advantage of composite resin – You do not need multiple visits to get work done. This in turn means and takes us to another benefit – You won’t require any temporary dental appliance, the dentist will not send your tooth sample to lab for fabrication and you will have to travel less.
Composite resin is one such dental treatment option which has been in use for more than a decade. It is known to restore minor, moderate, and even large defects in teeth caused by decay or trauma. The modus operandi of composite resin is to make sure a considerable amount of health teeth is preserved while using replacing the lost tooth structure with the help of adhesives.
Choice of materials for composite resin
In case of slight or moderate loss of teeth, the composite resins allow dental restorations. This helps in avoiding further removal of tooth. On the other hand bonded porcelains are used in conditions where the condition of tooth is beyond repair. The choice of material has helped in improvement for a patient from two aspects – biologic and social. The new materials are cheaper and really effective.
Leave it to your dentist to decide which material he/she will be using. It is a very important decision and will come from years of experience, understanding of the procedure and understanding your condition. Composite restoration will require just one visit to the dental clinic.
