New Smile with Composite Fillings
We helped this patient by replacing old discolored fillings. Sometimes teeth are congenitally small. When this happens it is most often the maxillary lateral incisors - the ones on the top next to the middle teeth. Often times I work with an orthodontist who typically uses braces to place these smaller teeth in the right spot so that composite can be added to them, restoring them to the desired shape and size. However, braces aren't always necessary, it just depends on each patient.On this particular patient, I used advanced multi-layering techniques to add depth, strength, luster, and high polish to ...
Sometimes you're born with them, sometimes they're made. But oftentimes we can help make them go away! With our special non-invasive (no drilling) technique we can help give your teeth a more uniform and natural appearance.
Sometimes old fillings become stained and worn over time. One of the most conservative treatment options available is replacing those old fillings with new composite materials used in advanced layering techniques. This example shows one of the other benefits of composite, the middle tooth on the left had composite added to it so that it would be the same width as the middle tooth on the right. This was done so there wouldn't be the natural space in between the two middle teeth. Aside from removing the old filling, no drilling was needed on these teeth. This conservative nature is ...
Tooth Colored Fillings for Beautiful Back Teeth (Posterior)
A relatively new "player" to the game is tooth colored, also known as Composite, fillings. And by new, we're talking about 20-30 years. Composite fillings vary in microscopic composition, but all try to mimic the natural appearance of a tooth. I'll always make sure you're getting the best type of composite for each specific tooth. I love composite fillings since they allow me to really embrace my artistic side. There are basically two other types of filling materials available, so also look for my info on gold and amalgam fillings.
Sealants are a great way to help prevent cavities from forming in the first place. The best time to have a sealant placed is shortly after the new adult molar tooth erupts and only when it has naturally deep grooves - ones that are hard for a toothbrush to sweep down and clean out. Even if the grooves are only moderately deep, it still might be a good idea particularly if several other teeth have already become decayed.My office places sealants a little differently than most other offices. In most cases, I will use a special soft isolation device to ...
Gold inlays often replace failing amalgam or composite fillings. Although they can also be the first restorative material used to repair a cavity as well. Make sure to read all about the benefits of gold by clicking the link to the right under "Related Services." This gold inlay I did was completed on another dentist. Notice how much tighter the margins are (where the restoration meets the tooth) and how much smoother the inlay is. When gold is finished like this it feels remarkably smooth to your tongue!Also see my Before & After on Gold Onlays.
