Composite resin restorations are a general dentistry procedure where tooth-colored filling material is used to repair areas of decay or replace silver fillings. Composite resin restorations are durable and help bond the tooth together more than metal fillings. Shade selection is varied and a great deal of care is given to selecting the correct shade and matching the existing tooth color.
Bonding is a procedure where a tooth-colored filling material (composite resin) is placed and sculpted onto the teeth to produce beautiful, natural and healthy looking teeth. It is a conservative method used to restore decayed, chipped, crooked or discolored teeth, or to close small gaps or spaces between the teeth. When used to improve a smile cosmetically it can be a labor-intensive procedure, requiring artistry and skill on the part of the dentist as the composite is layered and the shading varied. Bonding is not as long lasting or durable as an all-porcelain laboratory-fabricated dental veneer, but it can produce beautiful and natural looking teeth and give you a gorgeous smile in one office visit.
Root Canal Therapy
Sometimes when a tooth becomes infected, root canal treatment can save the tooth and prevent it from being extracted. Root canal technology has advanced significantly and now general dentistry patients can experience a comfortable dental experience while restoring their dental health.
Gum disease is an extremely common dental hygiene concern. This infection can advance unnoticed until it develops into serious dental issues. Talk to our general dentistry team about gum disease. Diagnosing and stopping gum disease early will improve your dental hygiene and the long-term health of your smile.
