For those patients who experience minor to moderate tooth damage, such as chips, cracks or decay, Dr. Hattaway may recommend tooth-colored, composite resin fillings. These restorations are easily completed in a single appointment, and best of all, the high-quality composite resin can be shaded to perfectly match your existing dental structure. Once your treatment is complete, you may not even remember which teeth were damaged.
The treatment process is simple. We begin by numbing the area that will be treated. Then, our skilled dentist prepares the tooth by removing any damaged structures and applying an etchant material that will improve the bond between the tooth and composite material. Next, he applies a small amount of custom-shaded composite resin to the tooth, where it will seep into even the smallest pits and grooves to form a solid bond with the natural dental structures. Finally, we use a curing light to harden the putty-like resin material into position, leaving you with a flawless smile.
