Our team at Firlik Family Dentistry in Grand Rapids, MI cares about how your smile looks so you can smile with confidence. Dr. Firlik can repair cavities in your teeth with composite resin fillings and dental bonding.
Composite Resin Fillings and Bonding
In the past, dentists used amalgam, composed of silver and mercury, to fill cavities. Many older patients still have amalgam fillings. Dr. Firlik instead uses composite resin fillings, which are a considerable improvement over amalgam fillings.
Dr. Firlik will safely remove the amalgam and replace it with a composite resin to create a smile you will love. She will match the color of your composite resin filling to the rest of your teeth so your smile will stand out.
To apply composite resin to a tooth, a dedicated adhesive gel is brushed on to assist in the tooth-resin bond. Composite resin is then sculpted over the gel, exposed to a special LED light to harden it, and then blended and polished to a smooth, attractive finish.
Composite resin fillings do not expand or contract with fluctuating temperatures, so you can enjoy hot or cold drinks and foods without pain...and they will help prevent bacterial decay. They are safe, affordable, and an attractive solution for many dental problems.
Dental Bonding techniques that use composite resin are another popular and effective method of improving your smile:
Dr. Firlik can give you back a beautiful smile - and your confidence - with composite resin fillings and dental bonding techniques.
