At Ascent Dental Care Malvern, we have found that many patients are unhappy with their smile but are unable to pinpoint ‘why’. With a bit of gentle questioning, we usually discover this is due to a combination of issues on one, some or all of the teeth, such as:
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Minor cracks
- Overlapping or uneven teeth
- Grooves in teeth
- ‘Pointy’ teeth
- General wear and tear
Composite is a dental resin material that is not only functional but looks natural and is aesthetically pleasing as well. This adaptable material can be used in a number of different ways depending on the problem and the desired result. At Ascent Dental Care Malvern, we use composite resin for veneers, white fillings, dental bonding and composite build-ups.
Composite build-up is an option that can be considered by any patient who wishes to:
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Fix spaces or gaps between teeth
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Change the shape of teeth
- Protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed due to gum recession
Composite build-ups are created using different layers of composite resin material that is ‘cured’ and bonded in place. This skill and precision creates a tooth that looks entirely natural and indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth. Because it is bonded in place, the composite becomes very durable and tough.
Composite build-ups allow us to manipulate the white filling material to create whiter, more harmonious and symmetrical smiles ‘free style’ by hand, often in just one visit.
The Composite Build-up technique has a myriad of uses and results are more aesthetically pleasing smile, there really is no contest.
