Composite fillings have a natural appearance as they bond protective material to the tooth structure.
Because of their subtle look, Sleep Dentistry of Portland uses composite fillings to restore the natural look of teeth while avoiding any metallic appearance.
Quickly Repair Minor Flaws
The composite used for these fillings is a tooth-colored plastic resin material that is bonded to a tooth to restore its structure. It mimics the shade and translucency of your natural teeth.
This material often is used to replace tooth material that is missing or damaged, and composite fillings also can correct gaps and discoloration.
A composite filling usually only takes one visit. The doctor will prepare the area that needs to be fixed and then apply the tooth-colored composite resin for quick results that look natural.
