Your Local Cosmetic Dentist in Mill Creek, Washington
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide range of improvements that have gradually occurred in dentistry over the years. These include all-porcelain metal-free crowns, implants, Invisalign and a big improvement in the quality of the tooth colored composite resin materials that are available today. We have just begun to use a bioactive hybrid resin material that blends composite, glass ionomer and compomer technology. Ions at the interface of the tooth-restoration interact with tooth structure and saliva at the cellular level to provide a more durable and decay resistant seal. Composites tend to shrink when cured and micro-leakage at the interface has always been a potential problem. We are excited that this new technology may help overcome this.
