Composite Restorations

Did you know that smiling is good for your health? When you smile, your whole body relaxes, and your immune system is boosted. You can immediately improve your mood by smiling, even if you don't feel like it. A stunning smile can win a starring role for an actor, help someone receive a promotion at work, and more. But a smile that is less-than-perfect could be cause to avoid smiling in public. That's a shame. We want to give you a smile that you can be proud of here at Guerrino Dentistry. We can give you a reason to smile again, regardless of the cause of your imperfect grin.

Guerrino Dentistry | Composite Restorations

Are you one of the unfortunate individuals in the world today that has simply never been satisfied with their smile? Or maybe you used to have a stunning smile, but due to age, poor oral hygiene, oral trauma, or some other undesirable circumstance, your smile has suffered, grown dingy, or been severely affected in some other negative manner. The "why" doesn't matter. What you need to know is how to fix this situation. You might need a smile makeover that could include composite restorations.

At Guerrino Dentistry, we are more aware than anyone that each and every smile is different – just like its owner. The patient's facial appearance, hair color, skin tone, teeth, gum tissue, and lips must be taken into consideration on an individual basis. In the case of composite restorations, tooth color is a major consideration.

Why Do You Need Composite Restorations?

There are numerous reasons for which to get a composite restoration, but what it boils down to is that your teeth (and you) are suffering and are in need of relief and repair. Tooth decay, chipping, or some other tooth altering occurrence could be the reason for needing composite restoration.

Additionally, you may have had a composite restoration done in the past that has failed. In clinical settings, composite restorations are long-lasting. But in real life, people use and abuse their teeth on a regular basis. Fracture and secondary caries are reasons for posterior tooth composite restoration failure. Restoration failures can also be a result of the age of an old restoration, the result of tooth grinding and clenching, improper dental care after the restoration was done can result in failure, the technique and material used in an older restoration could influence its longevity, and so on.

Composite Restorations | Areas Of Specialty

At Guerrino Dentistry, we offer various types of composite restorations. These include the following:

  • The restoration of decayed teeth – to restore decayed teeth, a tooth colored glass and plastic mixture is used as a composite filling.
  • Smile/dental cosmetic improvements – here, reshaping disfigured teeth or the changing of tooth color could be accomplished.
  • You may choose to ask your dentist about amalgam fillings which are said, particularly for chewing surfaces like molars and other back teeth, to be more durable. You might also want to check with your dental plan to see which type of composite restorations are covered, if that is a concern.
