White fillings are done by the dentist in Geelong using composite resin. Composite resin restoration explained by dentists Geelong at Around Geelong Dental Care in Geelong at Norlane; Composite resins are types of synthetic resins which are white in colour that is used to do the filling for your teeth.
Composite resins are used in dentistry as restorative material or adhesives. Composite resin is the material of choice by the dentists to fill gaps or holes on the tooth and to restore your teeth.

The tooth that needs dental filling with the dentist is drilled, washed, dried and a bond which is like glue is then applied by the dentist. The bond is set using a blue light called light cure and the composite resin material is placed in layers and it is light cured by the dentist. Dental fillings by the dentist restores the tooth to its natural shape and size wherever possible. Dentist checks the bite and the dental fillings are polished by the dentist using different polishing techniques.
