Dental decay will make treatment necessary for many people at least one time in their lives. The right approach to care can provide long-term protection for your tooth as well as the preservation of your smile. Our practice provides tooth-colored fillings for patients impacted by mild to moderate cavities—these restorations can preserve how you look while offering the needed functional strength to ensure you can maintain a comfortable and natural bite function.
Cavities do irreversible harm to enamel; the more time yours is given to grow, the more harm to the overall tooth structure. For mild to moderate issues with decay, we can carefully remove unhealthy tissues and replace what was lost with a filling made from a biocompatible composite resin substance. The material provides the necessary functional strength to ensure you can still absorb bite pressure in addition to cosmetic benefits for your appearance.
After we confirm that a filling will provide the support you need, we can proceed with care by removing the decayed enamel from the tooth and confirming the remaining structure is free from infection. A liquid adhesive is then applied to the affected area before the composite resin filling is placed. Through this arrangement, a remarkably strong bond occurs to keep the material in place and ensure that it both looks attractive and stays firmly in place after hardening. This work can be completed in just one appointment, making this care discreet as well as convenient.
Through the use of lifelike composite resin, we can place dental fillings that preserve the integrity of your tooth while also preserving its appearance. If you would like to learn more about this or any other aspects of restorative care we provide, call My Dentist in Londonderry,NH at 603-965-3407.
