Composite Dental Work

Century City Mercury Free Dentist - Dr. Richard Silvera - Composite Fillings & Bonding

A healthy mouth is extremely important to your overall physical well-being, and a beautiful smile does wonders for your confidence. Today more than ever, it is possible to have teeth restored and maintained while looking completely natural. Composite fillings and bonding help make that possible for our Los Angeles dental patients. Composites are a tooth-colored resin (made of a mixture of glass and plastic) used to restore decayed teeth and to make cosmetic improvements to the smile. Century City Mercury Free Dentistry

Renowned LA dentist Dr. Richard Silvera has over 40 years of experience performing composite work. He loves being able to offer this option to his patients because it allows for the mouth to be functionally restored and looking truly natural.

Composite Fillings

As the new gold standard in dental fillings, composite fillings are tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin material. Many people choose composite fillings over older traditional fillings because they are significantly less noticeable in the mouth and some believe traditional fillings pose a health risk.

A primary advantage of composite fillings is that they look very natural. Dr. Silvera can blend shades to arrive at a color that closely resembles your natural tooth. Also, composite fillings securely bond to the tooth, providing support to the remaining tooth structure. Not only does this prevent damage to the tooth, but it also acts as an insulator from extreme temperature exposures.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a minimally invasive cosmetic dental procedure that also uses composite resin material. In this case, it’s used to repair discoloration, fractures, and chips in the teeth. A veneer is a stronger alternative to composite bonding, but they are more invasive, requiring a lab for a larger amount of tooth to be filed away.

Dental repairs using composite bonding can usually be accomplished in one dental appointment and require minimal, if any removal of the healthy tooth. This means the procedure is typically painless, does not require the use of anesthetic and is a more affordable option in cosmetic dentistry.
