The Versatility of Composite Resin

When it comes to restoring your smile, there are high-quality materials that optimize the function and health of your teeth as well as enhance their cosmetic appearance. One of the most preferred dental materials available is composite resin, a tooth-colored solution that can be used to restore a cavity or correct a minor aesthetic dental concern. Composite fillings are an excellent long-term and affordable way to fix your smile without others noticing you’ve had major dental work done.

What is a Composite Resin?

Composite resin is a white or tooth colored material used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures. They offer improved aesthetics and safety compared to silver amalgam fillings that contain mercury. In addition, the natural blend of composite resin to your teeth makes it an excellent option for restoring or improving front teeth that are more visible. Your composite filling is designed to last for many years. However, it should be properly cared for in order to retain the best results. We educate patients on the importance of good oral hygiene, proper eating habits and regular dental visits that can extend the life of your new fillings.

At Laguna West Dental, we may use composite resin material restoratively or cosmetically to address the following:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing space between two teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Worn teeth

Whether we are using composite resin to bond a tooth or fill a cavity, you’ll love how painless and quick the procedure can be. We can place your composite filling in a single appointment. Composite resin is carefully placed in layers and is shaped, hardened and polished to create a natural and beautiful outcome. If you experience mild sensitivity after a composite filling is placed, this is only temporary and should subside shortly.

Suzanne B.

As I was walking to my car after my appointment I thought, I sure am happy I come here. I get warm friendly service and gentle, thorough care throughout my visit. Dr. Chan and his staff are the best.

Jennifer B.

We've been so very happy with Dr. You and his staff since we moved to Sacramento in 1985! We've followed him to the current location in Laguna...he and his staff take such good care of all our dental needs. I have no hesitation in recommending their services!

Stephanie O.

In my 65 years on the planet, and hundreds of hours in former dentists' offices, Dr. You and his staff are by far the best I've ever encountered. My very recent crown replacement was 100 percent pain free! All phases of treatment, from removal of the old crown, mold taking and making, to the permanent placement with my brand new well-matched molar, was seamless. I respect and applaud Laguna West Dental Care for taking such talented care of me.

Janet S.

Since retiring, I drive and hour and a half each way to continue to see Dr. You and his entire staff ... and I hate to drive. No better dentist and hygenists in Sacramento and I have tried others over the years. Thank you for a great experience each and every time Laguna West!

Norman H.

In my 50+ years, I've probably had 7 to 8 dentists and have had my share of bad experiences that made me fearful of going to the dentist. But, after switching to Dr. Chan in 1991, I really couldn't be happier and don't dread dental appointments anymore. Dr. Chan is gentle and exceptionally good at giving shots that I can barely feel. He even calls me in the evening after every procedure to make sure I'm doing okay. The staff is friendly and caring and the facilities are nice. Highly recommended.

Carol D.

We've been patients of Dr. You and Dr. Chan since my son was in kindergarten - now a County employee. Everyone on the staff is great. I had one bad experience with a dentist referred by my insurance co. - I'd NEVER see a dentist again without a personal referral. Consider this mine to you -- Laguna West is an excellent choice!
