When you have cavities or other minor dental damages, our team can offer you composite repairs to fix your teeth and restore your radiant smile. If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a composite dental repair can be an excellent choice to restore functionality and esthetics to your smile.
Direct: In this case, our team would repair the damaged tooth by applying the tooth-colored resin to the specific area, then fix the material in place using a special light.
Indirect: These filings are mainly used to repair teeth located at the back of the mouth and the procedure often requires two visits to our Montreal office. To guarantee strength and durability, the filling material is prefabricated in a laboratory and installed during the second visit.
Composite fillings must be cared for, so good oral hygiene, including daily brushing, flossing and a balanced diet with minimal sugar intake are essential. It is also very important to avoid biting into hard objects that could damage your composite repair. Consumption of coffee, tea or red wine should also be reduced to avoid staining the restoration.
People often prefer composite restorations to silver or metal fillings because they offer good durability and they can be used on both the front and rear teeth. Composite fillings have now become the first choice for patients looking for natural-looking teeth.
