At the Dentist of Summerlin, we understand that everyone wants a dazzling, white, beautiful smile. But there are a number of things that can prevent you from achieving the smile of your dreams. Among these are unsightly cavities, gaps between the teeth, chipped teeth. For these problems, bonding techniques or white fillings can be great options to enhance the look of your smile.
Gaps between your teeth can be both unsightly and unhygienic. Food particles can easily make their way into these gaps and produce build-up and tartar that could result in cavities and other problems. Bonding is a safe and popular method used to “close” these gaps, fill in cracks, cover tooth discoloration and greatly enhance the aesthetics of your smile. The results of bonding typically last 10 years or more, and you’ll see your finished results as soon as your step out of our offices.
White Dental Fillings
If you’re like most people, you’ve already had a dental filling or two in your life. But depending on when these were performed, you may have received amalgam, or silver, fillings that result in an obvious, unsightly smile. We use white fillings, which are made up of a composite resin that is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel placed on the tooth. After we have applied this resin, we use an ultraviolet light to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a beautiful, single-color smile.
White fillings, an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings, are the perfect way to treat your cavities and maintain your oral health. We all get cavities, but there’s no reason to let everyone know! With the advancements in dental technology, these white fillings can last for years to come, giving you the beautiful, healthy white smile you want.
