Composite Fillings In Cincinnati, OH
Composites serve both functional and aesthetic purposes and are often used together. For instance, if there is a cavity on the front of a tooth near the gum line, it may be visible when you smile. However, this issue can be resolved by removing the discolored area and replacing it with a tooth-colored filling, resulting in a tooth that looks even better than before.
Composites are composed of a mixture of liquid resin and finely ground glass particles. To harden the filling material, a blue light is applied directly to the composite, which takes only seconds after it has been shaped to fit the tooth. The restoration process is complete once the filling has been sculpted and polished to achieve a smooth and shiny finish.
