At Kvinsland Dentistry, we believe bonded composite fillings are an excellent choice for repairing cavities and chipped or broken teeth when a crown or other treatments are not necessary.
Improving your Smile
What is it and when is it appropriate?
Bonded composite fillings can be used to repair a decayed or damaged tooth as well as to buildup a tooth structure for other dental treatments required. Typically, decay is referred to as a cavity.
What are the benefits?
The composite bonding procedure is completed in a single visit. Using a composite filling is a conservative way of treating a tooth and preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible. We also match the natural shade of your teeth so that it blends well with the rest of your smile.
What is the procedure?
The bonding procedure is completed in a single office visit:
- Most often we prepare the area by getting the tooth numb and then we place a rubber dam to keep the tooth isolated and dry.
- We then remove decayed or broken tooth structures.
- A multi step bonding material will then be placed followed by a resin composite filling.
- Finally the tooth will be adjusted and smoothed leaving you with a natural looking tooth.
