Dental amalgams don’t release enough dangerous substances into your body to be of any consequence. A possible alternative paragraph would be that amalgam fillings/restorations do not bond to teeth whereas composite resin does. This bonding offers advantages in several situations to an amalgam restoration. These advantages include strengthening the teeth, preservation of tooth structure, greater resistance to falling out, reduced temperature sensitivity and far superior aesthetics.
Dr. Batterton will prepare the tooth by cleaning it, then roughen its surface using a mild abrasive. This helps the dental bonding material adhere better to your tooth. He will apply a conditioning liquid to the tooth’s surface.
Next, Dr. Batterton will select a putty-like resin that closely matches the color of your tooth. He will then mold and shape the resin to match the desired look of your tooth.
Once Dr. Batterton is satisfied with the shape and size, he will use a specific wave length blue light to harden the resin. Finally, he will polish and buff the bonding material until it matches the rest of your tooth’s surface.
