Advantages of Composite Bonding
Rather than a cap or veneer, a bond is a faster, less expensive option that suits the needs of many individuals. In bonding, a resin is placed over the broken, stained, or weakened part of the tooth. As it adheres to the surface, your tooth is shaped to a more ideal appearance and the bond can last up to ten years.
State-of-the-Art Dental Fillings
Tooth decay and cavities are the most common reasons for needing a filling. However, your dentist may recommend a filling for a cracked or chipped tooth, or one that has been worn down from grinding, in order to protect the pulp, or inner layer, of your tooth. If bacteria lodges in a cracked tooth, it may burrow deeper and infect the pulp, leading to larger problems in the future. For this reason, a dentist may preventatively fill the crack, making a protective layer over it so that bacteria cannot invade.
During the process of installing a filling, your dentist will:
- Numb the area to avoid discomfort
- Drill out decay and weakened enamel from the tooth
- Shape the space so the filling has a good place to adhere
- Fill the space with your chosen type of composite
Types of fillings include: resin, amalgam, gold, ceramic, and glass ionomer. The most popular fillings are the ones that blend with your teeth, such as resin and ceramic. Each filling lasts for different amounts of time, and is ideal for different locations throughout your mouth. We can help you select the one that best fits your needs.
