A Cavity that Appears in Your Smile Might Be Treated with a Composite Resin Dental Filling

Posted .

When a cavity develops on one of the teeth in your smile it is quite apparent to the casual observer. This can hamper your self-esteem, limit your ability to bite off hard foods and cause tooth sensitivity problems. If the cavity is small Dr. Robert Jackson might be able to repair the tooth with a simple dental filling.

Once the tooth has been sufficiently numbed, Dr. Robert Jackson will use a special dental drill to remove all traces of tooth decay. This will also create a smooth surface to bond the dental filling. The material they recommends will be based on the tooth’s visibility in your smile and its basic function.

Composite resin is a good option for repairing this type of cavity. it is a special type of dental grade plastic that can be shaded to match the adjacent tooth enamel. Once Dr. Robert Jackson has shaded and applied the composite material they will use a special ultraviolet light to harden it. This will also bond the dental filling in place.

With increased focus on your daily oral hygiene routine, you can expect the newly repaired tooth to last for many years.
