The Benefits of Composite Resin Dental Bonding and White Fillings for Cavities

Dr. Steve Dugan of Wichita, Kansas, is a restorative and cosmetic dentist who can assist patients in the local community with their dental needs. In addition to providing quality care for most dental needs, he is also pleased to have a focus on esthetic dental work and restorative services. Composite resin bonding,often referred to as dental bonding, is a material that can be used to repair a tooth or restore one that has had a cavity.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

The field of restorative dentistry focuses on ensuring the appearance, function, and health of one or more teeth are improved as needed. If you have gapped teeth, composite resin bonding may be a fast and affordable fix that can last several years. It is cheaper than porcelain veneers, though it can stain and need replacement sooner. Composite resin bonding is also used as a cavity filling in teeth that have tooth decay. It allows for tooth-colored restorations, unlike silver amalgam fillings used in the past.

What are the Advantages of Composite Resin in Dentistry?

Composite resin bonding has many benefits, making it a popular choice among patients and dentists.

  • Composite resin bonding can be matched to the color of your teeth so that it looks natural once placed.
  • Composite resin bonding might be used to repair small chips or cracks in your teeth that may not require a more extensive procedure.
  • Composite resin is a much easier material to work with than porcelain, which means the procedure is normally completed in just one visit to the dentist.
  • Composite resin bonding is much more affordable than other cosmetic dental procedures such as porcelain veneers.
