Taking care of your family’s teeth can seem like a full-time job. But even if you’re committed to brushing and flossing regularly and eating a healthy diet, you can still get a cavity.
Fillings are one of the essential services we provide at Arcadia Dentaldontics. When we catch a cavity soon enough, we can easily stop decay from spreading by filling your tooth. This is the simplest way to create a repair that is conservative and cost-effective.
We want to help protect your oral health with treatments that make the most sense for you. Dr. Thai takes pride in the long-term relationships they’ve developed with our patients. By getting to know you and your family, we can suggest the types of treatment that take all your unique needs into consideration.
Esthetic Tooth-Colored Fillings
Improvements in dental materials have opened up a lot of options that weren’t available until recently. Today we use tooth-colored composite fillings to create a repair that is durable and looks completely natural.
The term “composite” refers to a material like plastic or resin, which is bonded to an existing tooth as a filling or cosmetic repair. Composite dental fillings strengthen teeth by creating a sound tooth structure. Our training and experience help us create stunning smiles with composite fillings.
Basic services like fillings are essential for maintaining excellent oral health. It’s important to stay current with regular exams and cleanings because we can monitor your oral health and find cavities long before they become a problem. Our doctors have helped restore many of our patients’ smiles, and we are constantly mastering the latest dental techniques and technologies.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
The natural appearance of composite filling material makes it a perfect choice for correcting certain cosmetic imperfections. In a procedure known as dental bonding, we can change the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, improperly spaced, or severely stained.
Bonding is a cost-effective cosmetic treatment because the procedure can be completed fairly quickly. In fact, depending on your situation, we can often complete several of these repairs during one appointment. This is convenient for you and makes dental bonding more affordable than other restorations like dental crowns.
Healthy Teeth That Last a Lifetime
Prevention is the easiest way to maintain perfect oral health, but cavities can and do develop. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality dental care possible by combining time-tested treatments with updated techniques and materials. We strive to choose treatments that restore your teeth while increasing the odds of a lifetime of healthy use.
We want you to be educated and informed about your choices. If you have questions about fillings and which type is the most suitable for your needs, please contact our Arcadia dental office.
