Our Sun Prairie office is home to a full menu of cosmetic dental services. When it comes to dental fillings, we are proud to give patients the most preferred solution available. Instead of silver amalgam fillings used in the past, our dentists use tooth-colored composite resin. Whether we are repairing an area of decay or addressing a minor aesthetic flaw, our filling material blends seamlessly within your natural smile and is top-ranked in durability and safety.
Composite fillings can be used as a restorative solution, such as to repair a cavity or tooth crack. They can also be used cosmetically to improve your smile appearance. Many patients rely on composite resin as a cost-effective and quick solution to address minor smile imperfections, such as small gaps, discoloration or tooth chips. In all cases, you can expect to receive patient-centered care and superior results at Thousand Oaks Dentistry.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a white, plastic and glass mixture that can be customized to match your unique smile. The procedure is non-invasive and can be completed within minutes. One of our skilled dentists will gently apply the composite material to the affected tooth or teeth. Each layer is hardened under a special curing light and the tooth is polished to prevent early wear. Best of all, your composite filling will be well hidden within the beauty of your natural smile.
Unlike silver fillings used in the past, composite resin does not contain metal or mercury. It is also proven to be highly-durable, as it bonds directly to the surface of the tooth. At Thousand Oaks Dentistry, we are proud to offer tooth fillings that look attractive as well as hold up well for long-term dental function.
