With today’s modern advancements in cosmetic dentistry, you no longer have to get an unsightly metal filling to repair a cavity.

Composite resin is highly durable and made to blend seamlessly with your existing tooth color. Therefore, you won’t have to sacrifice your smile aesthetics when restoring your dental health. Dr. Paes is a skilled family dentist who offers composite fillings for children and adults. He takes pride in his ability to offer state-of-the-art dentistry in the most comfortable, convenient and affordable ways possible. Our Lagrangeville office uses composite fillings as a means to repair tooth decay as well as correct minor tooth damage.
What is a Composite Resin?
Composite resin is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture that provides strength to a damaged or weakened tooth. This natural-looking material is bonded directly to the surface of the tooth and can be completed in a quick, painless procedure. Dr. Paes may also suggest using composite resin as an affordable solution for teeth that are chipped or have minor gaps. Compared to past amalgam fillings (metal fillings), composite resin is considered safer and certainly more attractive.
During your composite filling procedure, Dr. Paes carefully places the resin material in layers. A special light hardens the material as we shape it to fit the affected tooth. Finally, your filling will be polished to prevent early wear and staining. Your filled tooth can then be cared for just like your natural teeth.
