Alignment issues in your teeth can happen from any number of different sources. When this occurs, there is the potential for two teeth to meet and wear on each other at an unnatural angle. This dental attrition can cause a texture in the tooth enamel that invites bacteria to exploit the tooth. If this happens to a tooth that’s visible in your smile, it can significantly hamper your physical appearance.

For an issue like this, Dr. Chuck Majors can often repair the tooth with a composite resin filling. This type of filling is made from a special dental-grade plastic that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel. This can repair the tooth’s function and restore the appearance of your smile without the casual observer ever knowing the problem was there in the first place.

Once it has been cured and bonded to the tooth enamel with a special dental-grade ultraviolet light, the composite resin filling will repair the tooth for many long years ahead.
