Tooth Colored Fillings – Best way of Fixing Chipped Teeth or Old Fillings
The dentists at Midtown Dentistry are recognized internationally as experts when it comes to tooth colored fillings.
When you chip or crack a tooth, your Midtown Dentistry dentist will repair it using a number of different options – one of which is a tooth colored filling.
Your Houston dentist can even replace old silver fillings with tooth-colored fillings that look and feel like natural teeth.
The main material we use for tooth colored fillings is called composite. This tooth colored material is sculpted to your tooth and bonded with a strong light until it hardens.
If more of the tooth needs to be fixed, a tooth colored filling may not be possible and a ceramic bonded filling may need to be made. These are stronger and more accurate, but have a higher cost. The tooth repair is indistinguishable from the tooth.
IS BONDING AN ALTERNATIVE TO PORCELAIN VENEERS ?
A process called bonding can cover teeth just like porcelain veneers. Composite, the same material used in tooth colored fillings is used during a bonding procedure. The material is shaped on the front of the tooth, and when it becomes hard it is polished. Using this procedure the dentist can alter the shape of the teeth. They can also modify the length of the teeth and the color to give you the ultimate smile.
The problem with bonding? It stains quickly becoming dull looking, and leaks around the tooth causing decay. It does not last as long as a porcelain veneer.
MIDTOWN DENTISTRY PORCELAIN VENEERS ARE THE ULTIMATE – RESTORE CHIPPED OR CRACKED TEETH THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE.
Veneers are thin ceramic teeth covers that are extremely strong. They are often used to fix discolored teeth, repair worn down teeth and correct chipped teeth. Also, if you have a gap between your teeth, your dentist may use veneers to close the gap. One of the big advantages of the veneers is that they last a long time.
