When a tooth is damaged from decay, our team can remove the decay and restore the tooth using a dental filling. When a tooth has aesthetic flaws, dental bonding can be used to improve the tooth’s cosmetic appeal. Today we want to look at which restoration might be best suited for your needs.
This is an easy and minimally invasive method for making your teeth look great, thanks to the tooth-colored composite resin material that blends in with your natural teeth. Dental bonding allows our dentist, Dr. Paresh B. Patel, to fix the following tooth problems:
-Close unsightly gaps and spaces without resorting to braces
-Correct the shape of your teeth
-Lighten tooth stains and mild discoloration
-Build up and protect chipped or cracked teeth
To correct your tooth’s imperfections, Dr. Patel bonds the composite resin material onto your damaged tooth and shapes it to correct any flaws perfectly. While simple, dental bonding is a long-lasting, effective tooth treatment and can be done in just one comfortable visit.
Dr. Patel is pleased to offer tooth-colored, composite dental fillings to restore your smile. These natural-looking restorations protect your damaged tooth from further tooth decay and can also be done in one visit. Your dental filling can do the following for your smile:
-Bond to your tooth to boost its structural integrity
-Help the tooth stay strong to minimize future fracturing
-Protect the tooth from temperature fluctuations when eating or drinking something hot or cold
-Resist tooth decay
-Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings can fix even the smallest cavities
-They are safer than metal fillings, being without toxic metals (like mercury)
If you have a cavity or other cosmetic issue with a tooth in your smile, Dr. Paresh B. Patel and our team have the options your smile needs.
