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.

Entering the office feels more like a boutique hotel than the usual clinical dental office, the reception area is beautiful and you can enjoy a coffee and a snack before your appointment. The staff is welcoming and you can usually hear Dr. Minichetti's infectious laugh throughout the office. I have had a lot of restorative dental work including an implant, which is one of the benefits of this office, every procedure can be done in one place. The doctors work as a team so I was able to benefit from the expertise of three dentists not just one. The team is extremely experienced and proficient. I have consistently recommended this practice to all my family and friends.

Englewood Dental, like any place, always has room for improvement but is a well run, caring operation where the patient is the primary concern. Englewood Dental's goal is to give the patient the best dental care and personal one on one treatment. It is like a family between patients, staff and doctors.
