A dental composite (filling), is commonly used by your Denver dentist for corrective treatments. It is complemented with other materials to a pasty consistency, then tamped down into the tooth. The extra added contents can be to strengthen resistance, create flexibility, or enhance color, depending on what the composite is specifically being used for.

A hardening agent is pre-mixed into the composite, and activated by wavelengths from a “curing light” as the composite is placed. Your dentist will take care to keep the tooth completely dry during the procedure, to assure effectual adherence.
