In the event that you need to have teeth repaired, we use state-of-the-art materials to ensure the longevity of our work. Dr. Macaulay takes pride in the accuracy of fit and quality of materials used in our office. While silver metallic fillings serve a long life, they can contribute to sensitivity and cracking of teeth. The preferred material to use is a high quality resin that bonds completely to your tooth and does not contribute to secondary problems. The process of repairing teeth with composite resins includes: removing the unhealthy portion of the tooth, flowing the resin material into place, curing it with a high-intensity UV light, and shaping it to fit the rest of your bite. While sensitivity after this procedure is expected, it is usually short-lived.
