COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Composite fillings are used to repair minor tooth defects such as those caused by small amount of decay or small cracks in the teeth.

Before                                                     After

Composites, are made of special resins, reinforced with glass quartz particles and colored to match and blend into the surrounding tooth, rendering them virtually invisible. In placement of a composite filling, the diseased or weakened part of the tooth (as well as the old metal filling if present) is removed first. The new composite filling is then bonded into place. Not only are these fillings aesthetically pleasing, they are strong enough to provide years of function. Moreover, these fillings harden immediately after placement, so you can start using them as soon as you are out of the dental chair. You will feel comfortable while eating and look confident with a cleaner, whiter smile.

Is it recommended to replace silver fillings with tooth-colored filings?

There are several reasons for which we recommend to replace old silver fillings with newer, natural tooth-colored composites. Silver (mercury amalgam) fillings don’t bond with tooth structure resulting in microleakage at the interface between the filling and the tooth. This leads to decay around the filling. Composite fillings, on the other hand, are actually bonded to your teeth, meaning there’s no space for decay to grow. This means your natural tooth is less likely to crack after restoration. The most important reason for replacement are the aesthetic considerations. What would you rather like to see when you smile—a mouth full of silver or natural looking, white teeth? So, if your past dental work has left you with a mouth full of silver fillings, contact us today and reclaim your natural-looking smile today!

Each person is unique, and no one case presents a definitive reason why a space is present. Genetics can play a major role in how teeth form in your mouth. If your parents have spacing between their teeth, it is a good chance that you will also. Childhood habits largely affect the position of your teeth as well. Breathing mostly through your mouth and sucking on your thumb are examples of habits that will affect the position of your teeth. Adults can also have habits, like forcing their tongue against their upper teeth or pen biting, that can gradually shift teeth throughout life. When the teeth shift, spacing or even jaw joint pain can occur. Placing braces on your teeth in order to move them into their correct position is usually the most ideal treatment. Using orthodontics to move the teeth is the most time consuming, but it is also the most beneficial. Orthodontics is used to place teeth so that your bite is in harmony with your smile. All of the other treatments to fill the spaces, including tooth bonding, dental veneers, and dental crowns, although they are very good treatments, are considered esthetic and functional compromises, and should be discussed with us in order to determine which restorative dentistry treatment is best for you.
