When a small area of decay is present on the tooth surface it can predictably be repaired using composite resin restorative material. After the removal of decay the composite resin material is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied a LED light is used to harden the resin. At this stage the restoration is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Using composite resin restorations is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 5 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many common dental problems.
