Why Use Dental Resins?

Dental resins can be used in any dental cavity because they have several purposes. However, for a good retention of the material it is important that the patient has a good dental structure. It is also a procedure that can only be performed by a dentist like Dr. Ralph Torres.

If we talk from the cosmetic point of view, dental resins are the best option. Why? Because they are effective for solving different cases. For example, if you don't like the shape of your teeth, this type of procedure provides a more pleasant and natural look.

Similarly, they are used to cover tooth stains, fractured or chipped teeth and to reduce noticeable space between teeth. Likewise, resin serves as a filling material in case of cavities. In addition, it is used after the removal of a dental nerve as a result of oral disease.

Finishing and Polishing of Dental Resins

Once the decision is made to perform this dental treatment, the final phase of restoration is of great importance. Dental resins require a finish to redefine their anatomy and smooth the restored surface. In this way, you can redefine the margins that remain between the enamel and the resin to give an incredible look. The dentist removes resin debris and smoothes the surface to prevent future buildup of bacterial plaque.

As for polishing, it is a procedure that is carried out to finish with a smooth and shiny surface in the resin. Thus, greater resistance to pigmentations is achieved and the restorations will have a more natural finish. When ending with a successful finish, the patient does not have to worry about fracture lines or differences in color between natural teeth and resin.

How to Preserve the Life of Dental Resins?

After the placement of dental resins, it is important to follow each of the recommendations given by the dental professional. Its care is mandatory to keep the dental resins in good condition and provide greater durability. Depending on care and eating habits, dental resins can last between five to seven years approximately.

Patients with dental resins should regularly go to the dentist and have good oral hygiene. Thus, the deterioration of the resin and other oral problems is prevented.

When dental resins are properly cared for, you can enjoy their benefits:

Why is Resin the Best Material to Restore Teeth?

For starters, this restorative material is the color of your teeth. Therefore, it is a material that is at an advantage compared to that used for amalgams. In these other types of dental procedures, conventional silver is used, and there are people who choose it because it is cheaper. But is the material more convenient?

First, when applying amalgam, a large part of the dentin tissue must be removed. This causes the tooth to fracture on many occasions. Also, secondary cavities may appear under the amalgam, which will not be identified with x-rays. The truth is that these types of dental procedures do not look aesthetic. This is due to its silver color when it is recent or its grayish or black tone when it is an old procedure.

In the case of dental resin, it is made of a material known as silica. It makes this a wear-resistant treatment. For this reason, dental resins are used for aesthetic treatments, as well as for restoration or as a filling material.
