Bonding and Fillings
Bonding and fillings are a popular method to cover repair teeth after any invasive dental procedures, and enhance the aesthetics of a smile. Bonding corrects cracks or gaps in teeth as fillings, and make the surface impervious to further issues. Dentists usually do this after a cavity has been removed, and to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
How Do Bonding and Fillings Work?
The dentist molds and sculpts a composite resin, but does so over an adhesive gel that has first been placed on the tooth. The dentist applies the resin, and hardens it using an ultraviolet light, and finally polishing it to give you a fresh, new smile. Your fillings will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, and make your smile brighter than ever! You can treat these spots just as you do your normal teeth, but with some extra flossing to ensure they stay in tip-top shape.
An obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings, bonding is a far more aesthetically-pleasing choice, consequently making any stains or work you’ve had done almost invisible. Not only does bonding blend with the natural color of your teeth, but the fillings last much longer. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years, and proper care should keep them pearly white. You may need a filling, but it doesn’t have to be painful! It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
The term pain free dentist doesn’t get said often, but this is as close as it gets. Dr. Nick does a great job. I HATE needles and he talked me through it completely. If you want top quality dental care, coupled with a very relaxing environment, this is the place! 5 stars doesn’t do it justice!
I have been going to Dr. Nick for awhile now and it is the best place to go. They know what they are doing, in addition the whole staff is great. My whole family sees him.
Thank you so much for making me feel safe and comfortable after a couple terrible dental experiences at other offices. You guys are amazing!
