What are resin fillings and their advantages?

Affordable white dental resin fillings in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry


To solve a small dental caries through resin fillings is an alternative to take into account and very simple intervention that should not pose the slightest problem to the patient. We will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of resin fillings, one of the materials most used and that has almost completely replaced the metal amalgam.

One of the main positive factors of this material is that it respects the dental aesthetics of the patient since it is the same color of the tooth. It should also be noted that it adheres perfectly to the dental surface. In this way we are faced with a material that greatly improves the benefits offered by the amalgam, which would not look aesthetically pleasing.



On the other hand it is time to know the drawbacks of resin or composite fillings, in this sense we can say that it is a technique that can not be carried out in all dental pieces.  We have to take into account is that it is only advisable in case of small restorations, reason why those people who have a caries in advanced stage can not undergo such intervention since the results would not be the expected ones. The doctor will have to take a good look at the state of your teeth and if the decay is simply too great a dental crown might end up being your best shot.



As for the procedure itself, we can say that we are dealing with one of the simplest and fastest dental treatments found in Dentistry. It is done through local anesthesia and once the decayed part has been removed, the resin is placed in the hole. Finally the last step of this process is to apply a special light on the resin to get it to adhere to the tooth and become hard. This way we will be able to return both the aesthetics and the functionality of our teeth.
