simple and affordable
At macquarieDentists, we often utilise tooth-coloured composite resin fillings to restore your function and return your smile to its natural appearance. Resin materials are more biocompatible than traditional metal fillings and act more like our natural structure, expanding with hot and cold liquids and foods in the same way our teeth do. This means less stress on our teeth and less chance of cracks and breaks occurring. macquarieDentists offer several kinds of tooth-coloured restorations:
Composite Resin is a high strength tooth coloured plastic like material that initially resembles a paste. A colour is chosen that blends naturally with your tooth colour, and the material is placed on the tooth in layers. It’s then carefully sculpted to the shape of your tooth and hardened by a special LED light.
A composite resin restoration or filling is a direct restoration and is ideal for smaller fillings and correcting small blemishes, chips, cracks and misshaped teeth, and can be completed at macquarieDentists within a single appointment.
