If you need teeth fillings in London, ask about composite restoration
Cavities are a common dental problem that we see in patients of all ages. As a family dental practice, we always want to offer our patients methods of restoration that are strong, beautiful, and healthy. At Downtown Dental Centre in London, we take cavities very seriously and make every effort to restore health as soon as possible. While we highly encourage visits every six months to professionally clean the teeth and reverse the early signs of decay, we understand that sometimes cavities still happen. Our team works quickly and diligently to restore the smile with the help of composite restorations.
Why choose composite restorations
Composite restoration, also used for tooth bonding, is ideal for many patients who develop a cavity. During the examination process, we can evaluate the extent of the damage to determine what the best course of treatment is. Large areas of decay that extend deep into the teeth may not be suitable for composite restoration.
Tooth bonding uses the composite resin which is a pliable, tooth-colored material that can be matched to the patient’s natural enamel color. During the procedure, the dentist will begin by removing the decayed tooth material and cleaning the area. The cavity is then filled with the composite resin and a special curing light is used to harden the material. The area is then smoothed and polished for a result that feels comfortable and looks natural. Composite resin fillings are extremely durable and can last for many years with proper oral hygiene.
Other options for tooth bonding
In addition to filling cavities, composite resin bonding can also be used cosmetically on the smile. Teeth that are cracked, chipped, differing in size, or with gaps can be corrected with dental bonding. The result is often an improvement in the smile that is more cost-effective than alternative cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers.
A healthy, beautiful smile helps you feel confident in yourself, which can improve overall mood and wellbeing. If you are in London, Ontario and would like to learn more about composite restorations and other services we offer, please call us today at (855) 669-0775.
