Whereas general dentistry focuses on the health and quality of your teeth, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the outward appearance. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, general dentistry is for you. If you are unhappy with your smile, cosmetic dentistry is for you.
Tooth decay is the most common reason for needing a composite filling. Bacteria can feed on the sugars and starches left on your teeth by food or drink, causing plaque to form. The acids in plaque soften and then dissolve your enamel (the hard-protective coating on your teeth). This causes tiny holes which then grow bigger.
Composite bonding is usually used for filling chips, fractures or gaps between teeth, or for fixing discolouration.
A composite resin is attached to a tooth and shaped to restore its original appearance. The colour of the resin is matched to your teeth, so it will appear as though it is a natural part of the tooth. Composite bonding can help you achieve a smile you’re happier with.
