Our composite filling procedures and other dental services are always performed with a strong focus on your unique smile concerns and personal preferences. At Pristine Dental, you can trust that your treatment plan will include steps to achieve a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime.
Dr. Noh is an experienced dentist who routinely uses composite fillings to treat tooth decay, repair tooth damage or improve minor aesthetic concerns. Composite fillings are designed to be a long-term solution with the ability to match the natural shape and color of your tooth. If your tooth was damaged by trauma or decay, a composite filling can be the quick and affordable solution you need to restore your smile. Neglecting to treat a cavity can lead to painful symptoms and the need for root canal therapy or tooth extraction. At Pristine Dental, we care about the future of your smile. To help patients avoid future tooth damage, we educate them on the importance of oral hygiene, regular dental checkups and protective mouthguards during sports.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is not the only material that can be used to fill a cavity or repair a tooth, but it is the most preferred choice by patients and dentists. Composite resin is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture. It can be used for restorative and cosmetic purposes. Compared to metal (amalgam) fillings, composite resin fillings provide more natural aesthetics, increased durability and improved long-term safety.
During your composite filling appointment, Dr. Noh will place the resin material in layers on the affected tooth. He will then use a light to harden each layer before he shapes it to a custom fit. As a final step, Dr. Noh will smooth and polish your tooth to prevent staining and early wear. From the moment you walk in our doors until your final restoration is complete, you can expect comfortable, patient-centered care from Pristine Dental.
