Learn About Teeth Bonding at Burlington’s Cornerstone Dental
Bonding is a simple restorative dental technique. It involves shaping composite resin to fill up missing areas of your tooth, restoring your tooth to its original shape and size. If you’ve chipped your tooth or can’t get rid of a persistent, ugly stain, you may want to consider teeth bonding. At Burlington’s Cornerstone Dental bonding is a relatively simple procedure that can often be done in one visit to the dentist.
However, over time the bonding job can get damaged, so your dentist may have to check up on it once in a while. If you’re worried about the discomfort that often comes with taking dental impressions, you may be relieved to know that digital, more comfortable options are available at our Burlington clinic.
Cornerstone Dental, we are a mercury-free practice. Most fillings contain mercury, which has been in use for 150 years and FDA approve, but due to the potential health risks it can pose we have opted to not use this material.
Our practice offers a variety of different options, such as bonded composite restorations which are BPA free to porcelain restorations which are the most biocompatible with the body. All our dental materials are chosen with optimal health in mind.
Tooth Coloured Restorations
Tooth coloured restorations are a composite material made from tooth coloured plastic and glass mixture. This type of restoration is a popular choice since they are tooth coloured, bonded to your tooth, and completed in one appointment.
The benefits of tooth coloured restorations are very little of the tooth needs to be removed; it is a strong, adaptable material and esthetically pleasing. Composite resin is a versatile material and is used in a variety of procedures including replacing tooth structure damaged due to decay and closing gaps between teeth.
Bonded fillings are ideal for minor damage to teeth, so if you tripped and fell on your teeth against some concrete, ask us today about teeth bonding at Burlington’s Cornerstone Dental.
