Composite resin is a tooth colored material that can be used in a variety of ways. This material is often used to restore small chipped, or fractured teeth, as well as a filling material for cavities.
Composite resin restorations are bonded to your teeth and hardened with a strong light. The restoration is then adjusted to your bite and polished. This is a great alternative to amalgam restorations and a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers as well. Speak to your dentist to see if resin bonding is an option for you.
