What is a Composite Resin (White Fillings)?
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used as a safer filling material, for cosmetic improvements or for reshaping teeth.
How is a composite placed?
Following preparation, Dr. Dirk Jacobsen places the composite in layers and uses a specialized curing light that hardens each layer. When this process is finished he will shape the composite to fit the tooth and your bite and then finish by polishing the composite.
