With years of expertise and experience under our belts, we have the knowledge and hands-on training to help you achieve the smile you deserve. Our dentists provide biomimetic composite fillings, and our top-of-the-line treatments and technology deliver optimal results.
Signs that You Need a Composite Dental Filling
Almost everyone needs dental fillings at some point in their lives. Still, the need for dental fillings can be a serious dental health issue. Some signs that you may require a composite dental filling include pain while eating or drinking, visible holes or cracks in the teeth, discoloration of the tooth enamel, and an uncomfortable bite.
Do you have an outdated amalgam filling? While the American Dental Association (ADA) has ruled amalgams as a safe dental material, they are noticeable and can stain enamel. For these reasons, many patients are replacing metal fillings with composite fillings.
If any of these issues are present, visit your dentist as soon as possible to determine if a dental filling is needed. Dental fillings not only relieve dental pain but also help protect individual teeth from further decay. Taking proactive steps in dental care today will ensure long-term oral health in the future.
Advantages of Biomimetic Composite Fillings
Generally, biomimetic dental fillings are made from composite resin or porcelain, which are tooth-colored and designed to blend in beautifully with your natural teeth. Aside from aesthetics, biomimetic material does not expand or contract. Modern composite dental fillings are durable and ideal for restoring teeth with small cavities. Plus, composite resin lasts for several years before needing replacement.
How It Works
When preparing your teeth for tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Song and Dr. Cho only need to subtract the damaged part of the tooth. This minimally invasive treatment leaves more healthy tooth tissue untouched. Once placed, biomimetic tooth-filling resin firmly bonds to the dental surface. This prevents harmful bacteria from entering the tooth and protects the tooth from further decay and damage.
