Fillings & Bonding in Merrillville, IN
A composite filling is the restoration procedure of choice for treating a tooth with tooth decay. A composite is a tooth-colored filling that is made of ceramic and plastic compounds. These fillings mimic the appearance of natural teeth and are preferred amongst many patients and dental professionals. At Richter Dental, we offer tooth-colored fillings that look natural in your mouth and can replace the metallic look of silver fillings. The unique mixture of materials used in composite fillings provides supreme bonding, requires less preparation, and preserves tooth structure.
Tooth-colored bonding material can be used to restore broken, chipped, or stained teeth. The resin material reshapes the tooth and closes spaces between teeth created by gaps or chips in the tooth enamel. Each bonded area is carefully matched so that it blends in with the surrounding enamel. Bonding may also be placed over areas of gum recession to prevent severe sensitivity in those areas.
