The dentists at All Dental Tampa in Florida perform dental fillings on a routine basis, helping patients restore the function and appearance of their teeth. White resin composites are essentially a mix of ceramic and plastic materials that match the color of your teeth and help repair decayed teeth.
White Resin Composites
When we talk about tooth decay and cavities, one of the most common procedures that comes to mind is ‘fillings’. Thanks to technological advancements, there are multiple choices of materials available for cavity filling today. And the most preferred are those materials that mimic the color of your natural teeth e.g. resin composite fillings. The traditional dental fillings, i.e. metal amalgam fillings, also continue to remain popular among some patients.
What are white resin composite fillings?
Improvements in resin composites
When resin compounds were first introduced, they weren’t very strong and could not be utilized for the back teeth (i.e. where intense chewing and grinding action occurs). But technological advancements in the last decade have strengthened resin composites and they can now be used in the posterior teeth as well.
The primary benefit of white resin composites is aesthetics. It is possible to blend shades and develop a color that is almost identical to the color of your natural tooth. White resin composites can be bonded to your tooth and support the rest of the tooth structure. This ultimately helps in preventing breakage and protects your tooth from extreme temperature changes.
