composite resin

Composite resins have replaced amalgam fillings over the years. We can use them both in the anterior and posterior sectors, giving a natural aesthetic finish. In addition to the aesthetic aspect, the use of composites ensures increased tissue preservation.


Less disrepair

In fact, shaping the tooth to place a bonded resin is less invasive than for a filling, which requires mechanical retention. To summarize, a composite resin requires less digging into the tooth because only the decayed tissue is removed, which was a major advance in dentistry. Finally, resins are better insulators and conduct heat and cold less compared to metal.

Composite restoration after curettage


Different colors of resins are available and we will always try to match the color of your tooth as closely as possible. For the anterior sectors, several shades, textures and translucency of composites are applied successively in order to reproduce the morphology of your tooth as faithfully as possible. This is called stratification.

When bonding composites we will always endeavor to place an operating field wherever possible to ensure optimal bonding.


Composite resins are the solutions of choice for restoring a tooth that has lost up to 25% of its tissue volume. Beyond that , it is often necessary to resort to indirect techniques, through the bonding of inlay/onlays or the placement of a ceramic crown.

old fillings


The installation of a composite resin is much more demanding than that of a filling. They require good drying conditions and specific know-how. In fact, it is the principle of biomimicry that guides us in our work in order to copy your natural teeth as faithfully as possible.
