Dr. Goodman discusses his preference for using tooth-colored fillings. The benefits of the resin composite material are endless. Tooth-colored fillings blend in flawlessly with a patient's smile, reinforce structural support, and improve the overall health of a tooth.
In today's world, everyone is so cosmetic and image-oriented. It's nice that we have a solution and answer to people's concerns. They look in their mouths, and they see old, worn-down silver fillings that they had as a child, which now may be leaking. There may be decay. There could be cracks associated with the tooth. So it's nice now, that we have an answer for that. We just can simply remove that filling, clean up the tooth, and then rebuild it with a new, actually bonded material that can seal the tooth back up and restore it back to its original way, and at the same time looks like a real tooth. It's actually made of a composite resin material that's pretty much fine glass particles that are ground down microscopically. Then it's all bound together by these adhesives that we use to create a seal. Then we use a light that actually cures the material. So we can sculpt it, shape it, and then light-cure it, and within just seconds it's finished.
