Historically, silver mercury amalgam fillings have provided a strong and reliable means of restoring broken or damaged teeth for over 140 years. However, there has been an ongoing concern about the toxic effects of mercury. Yet, no evidence exists regarding a link between fillings containing mercury and general health. Aside from this, a very valid criticism, though, is the black appearance of the material, which is a stark contrast to the teeth.
Nowadays, in dental bonding procedures, a dental practitioner applies tooth-coloured resin material and then cures it with visible light (blue light). Subsequently, the material then bonds to the tooth, leading to a vast improvement in how your teeth appear. These tooth bonding treatments have a variety of clinical applications as well, which covers operative and preventive dentistry. It also has applications in cosmetic dentistry as well as in prosthodontics, and orthodontics.
Our Claremont dentists provide dental bonding and white filling treatments at an affordable price. Today, tooth-coloured resin filling materials are a better alternative for small fillings. These highly aesthetic fillings can refresh your smile with a more clean and natural looking appearance.
The techniques for placing composite resin fillings in is exacting, so the method to do this procedure must be followed meticulously to ensure a restoration that looks amazing and will last long.
For larger fillings, the restoration of choice is a porcelain on lay or inlay filling. Everyone has different needs so it’s best discussed at a consultation appointment. Therefore, contact our Claremont dental clinic today for more information on all your dental bonding and filling treatment needs.
