Composite Fillings

Composite fillings, or tooth-colored fillings as they are more commonly known, are a great option in cosmetic dentistry. Unlike their traditional metal predecessors, composite fillings blend in with the natural color of your tooth. Composite fillings are color matched to give the teeth a uniform appearance. In fact, with the right color shade, composite fillings can actually direct the eye away from other areas of discoloration in the teeth.

This type of filling is not as durable as amalgam fillings, especially in patients who have problems with teeth grinding. Before recommending composite fillings as an option for you, Gardner & Swanner will need to carry out a full and detailed assessment of your dental health. As always, we are committed to providing you with the most cost-effective and long lasting treatments. We will only recommend composite fillings if they are the best option for improving the look and feel of your teeth.

What is a Composite Resin?

Composite resin is a mixture of materials used to fill cavities or improve the cosmetic properties of the teeth. The resin is extremely malleable, which means that Gardner & Swanner can color and shape it to match your natural teeth. In that respect, composite fillings are ideal for correcting cosmetic imperfections in the teeth and restoring the natural appearance of your smile.

When you opt for composite resin fillings, you will want a cosmetic dentist with a wealth of experience. Gardner & Swanner has been providing cosmetic dental care to patients for over 40 years. When you visit our practice, we care about your smile as much as you do. If composite resin is the right choice for you, Gardner & Swanner can restore the look of your smile in just a few visits.
