Composite Fillings

At Pure Dental Health, we give patients the preferred choice in dental fillings. Instead of using amalgam or silver fillings, our dentists use a more aesthetically pleasing material called composite resin. With composite resin, we can repair an area of decay or make minor cosmetic corrections to a tooth using a tooth-colored material that blends seamlessly with your surrounding smile. Composite fillings are not only natural-looking in appearance, but they are durable and long-lasting as well.

While composite fillings are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can be used to repair an area of tooth decay anywhere in the mouth, composite is also a quick and budget-friendly way to enhance your smile appearance. Composite resin can be used to close a small tooth gap, fix a chipped tooth or correct an area of discoloration. When choosing our Dunwoody practice for cosmetic dentistry, you can expect a first-class experience from start to finish. Patients can enjoy complimentary beverages, TV entertainment, noise-canceling headphones, warm scented towels and much more.

What is a Composite Resin?

Composite resin is a plastic and glass mixture that can be blended to the exact shade of your natural tooth. It has the unique ability to bond directly to the tooth’s surface. This helps to support the existing tooth structure as well as prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from extreme temperature changes.

At Pure Dental Health, one of our skilled Dunwoody dentists will place the composite resin in layers. A special curing light is used to harden each layer before we custom sculpt the composite to meet your unique needs. Finally, the tooth is polished to prevent early wear.
