Repair Teeth With Matching Materials
With a tooth filling, what that does is it can replace a broken part of a tooth or a tooth that has a cavity. And what we do here in Dossett, is we do cosmetic resin bonded fillings. So we don’t do any of the silver fillings that a lot of patients have seen over time, and in the past. We focus mainly on the cosmetic bonded fillings. And what those are, they’re tooth colored, so we make sure to match the shade of the filling to your tooth. But if someone presents with a smaller cavity, a chip, something that doesn’t require a major cosmetic restoration, like a veneer or a crown, we’re able to restore that tooth to its function by using a filling. And what that does is it basically replaces the part of the tooth that you’ve lost through cavity or through an accident. So you have not only the cosmetic part with the filling matching your tooth, but it bonds to the tooth and actually strengthens the tooth and holds it together to allow you to not only smile with confidence, but eat without fear of the tooth breaking or without any pain.
