Composite Resins: Strengthen Your Smile

If you’re embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver, or amalgam, fillings.

Because composite resins are not made of metal, we can blend and mix shades to find the perfect color to match your natural teeth. This means only you and your dentist will know you have fillings. Another pro is that the tooth/composite bond actually supports the remaining tooth structure, deterring breakage and insulating against temperature changes. Medium and small composites can last seven to ten years – that’s as long as the tried and true amalgams. Best of all, composite resins allow us to keep more of your natural tooth structure intact than amalgams. We believe in conservative dentistry – the more natural tooth structure you keep, the better teeth you’ll likely have in the future.

Some patients experience mild and temporary post-placement sensitivity from composite resin fillings. The only caution we usually mention is that coffee, tea, and other staining foods and beverages may discolor your composites unless you ask to have them coated with a clear plastic sealant.

I had a lengthy consultation for major dental work with the oral surgeon, Dr. Minichetti, and a visit with Dr. Hong for a filling. I found both to be extremely professional and caring. I had my filling done and it went very well. My oral surgery is upcoming. I am, so far, very impressed by the ability to get almost every type of dental service here in one office. I really appreciate the coordinated care with the large team that seems to be working very efficiently and pleasantly with each other as well as the patients. And this office was highly recommended to me by many colleagues and friends.

I needed dental care desperately for years but was absolutely terrified of dentists due to many past experiences. I happened to see Dr. Minicetti on TV one day describing Englewood dental and I became convinced that FINALLY I may have found a practice I could try. From the very first phone call Englewood Dental did not disappoint! The front desk staff were friendly, knowledgeable and immediately put any fears I had to rest. The dental assistants are professional and friendly and Dr. Hong has just been awesome, providing me with expert and life changing dental care. I will never go anywhere else - I HIGHLY recommend Englewood Dental - you will NOT be disappointed!
