Composite resin is a popular restorative and aesthetic dental material. Made from a combination of plastic compounds and ceramic, resin is totally metal and mercury free. Our team uses resin to improve the appearance and the health of our patients’ smiles.
You may benefit from undergoing composite resin treatment if you want to:
- Repair or rebuild enamel
- Lengthen worn down teeth
- Cover and resurface dental enamel
- Improve your bite—using resin we can refine the way your top and bottom teeth come together
- Close gaps between your teeth
Composite resin starts off as soft, moldable material. However, once our team cures the resin is immediately hardens and bonds to your tooth. This entire process can be completed in just one dental appointment.
Porcelain is a much-loved material in dentistry. Not only is it exceptionally strong, but it also looks just like natural enamel. Porcelain is used to make restorative dental crowns, as well as aesthetic veneers.
Generally speaking, in both of these applications, patients only need to come in for two or three appointments in order to complete treatment. Our team will prep your teeth, craft your restorations, and permanently place them on a convenient timeline that works for you.
You may not realize just how important gum tissue is to the overall appearance of your smile until it is damaged. Our team offers restorative gum health treatments as well as gum tissue refinement, for those spots on your smile that may appear overgrown or poorly balanced.
