Dental composite for the reconstruction of small dental pieces

Composites – or aesthetic or white fillings – are made of resin, a synthetic material that hardens after the application of a LED light.

Technological advances in the world of dentistry have progressed to such an extent that it is now possible to reconstruct anterior teeth and fill molars without anyone noticing the difference between them and an intact tooth.

Composites, invisible to the naked eye

Thanks to the materials and new techniques currently available, reconstructions can be reliably carried out (aesthetically and functionally) so that they are invisible to the naked eye.

The teeth with the highest aesthetic requirements are the front teeth, as they are visible when smiling. Thanks to the latest generation of dental composites, it is possible to reconstruct, mask or conceal a large part of dental defects caused by caries, alterations in colour, fractures, teeth that are shorter than others, etc., making it possible to improve dental aesthetics.

Dental composite, the protagonist of countless dental treatments

Composite forms part of many of the treatments carried out by specialists in restorative dentistry, and can be used to carry out dental reconstruction, as well as a dental composite veneers.

The procedure consists of preparing the tooth enamel by means of a gel and the subsequent application of an adhesive. This powerful adhesive will support the composite: restoration material, which will be placed in small layers that will be carefully modelled and once each layer is placed, it will be hardened thanks to a powerful LED light.

The different colours and shades of the material can be combined to give the tooth the desired appearance. Finally, they are polished to smooth the surface and diamond pastes are used to give them a shine.

Dental composite for treating caries and carrying out small reconstructions

The indications for composite core dental are wide-ranging and they can be used on any tooth to treat small cavities or to reconstruct completely destroyed or fractured teeth. They can also be used to modify the shape and length of teeth, as well as to close the black spaces that may appear after gum treatment.

Among its main advantages there are:

  • Preservation of tooth structure
  • Simplicity of use when performing dental reconstructions
  • Time and cost savings as no laboratory costs are required
  • They are very useful for repairing fractured teeth (dental composite overlay)
  • They offer very natural results

But it is also an excellent treatment to solve different dental problems, helping:

  • To restore teeth that have suffered from caries
  • As aesthetics in young growing patients
  • To repair fractures
  • As provisional dental composite veneers
  • To close gaps after periodontal (gum) treatment

Undoubtedly, a treatment that will allow you to recover your best smile and in which the Eva Berroeta Dental Clinic is a specialist.
