One of the most popular materials used in modern cosmetic dentistry is composite resin. This versatile material can be used in a variety of settings, from filling simple cavities to completely transforming the look of a smile. At Horizon Dental Care we often apply composite resin directly to the tooth, allowing for lasting results you can see instantly.

Many dental procedures, from restorations to cosmetic improvements, require some level of tooth preparation: an amount of outer tooth enamel needs to be removed in order to accommodate the new filling, veneer, or crown. With direct composite bonding, the preparation process is essentially eliminated, resulting in quicker, conservative, and more natural outcomes.

Composite resin can be shade selected without risk of fading to match your precise tooth shade, or to whiten teeth instantly, meaning fillings are made unnoticeable. Do you have stained or discolored teeth? Composite resin can be used as a veneer to completely cover the visible surface of a tooth in a brighter, natural-looking shade. It can even be used to repair a cracked or chipped tooth.

Another reason for the popularity of composite resin is its durability. When properly applied, composites are incredibly resilient to the demands of daily biting and chewing use. And if it does become slightly damaged, it is easily repaired.
