Composite Fillings and Restorations
Teeth that have lost structure due to decay or trauma can be restored using a tooth-colored material called composite. At Racine Dentistry, Dr. Budzinski only uses composite to restore teeth. We are an amalgam, metal-free office.
Generally, a local anesthetic is given, the decay is then removed, the tooth is etched with a mild acid, a bonding adhesive is then placed and cured. The composite is then placed into the missing tooth structure. It recreates the tooth’s anatomy and color. The composite is then sculpted and polished.
We recommend a dental filling procedure to restore a tooth that has been eroded by wear or tooth decay. Additionally, they are an option for issues involving chips and fractures of the tooth. Depending on the material used and how well you care for them, fillings can last as many as five to twelve years.
Repairing a tooth affected by decay is paramount to prevent it from getting worse, which will lead to it needing more complicated treatment, so schedule a consultation with us at Racine Dentistry in Racine, WI, today.
