At Innovative Dental By Dr. A, we know how important it is to have a beautiful smile you can count on each and every day to make you look your absolute best. Dr. A and his team work closely with patients of all ages to ensure a healthy smile with attractive teeth and gums. This is why we urge patients with imperfections to speak to our team about restorative dentistry.
Restorative dentistry focuses on improving the health and wellness of the smile while also repairing function and esthetics. Function is important. Our teeth are in place to help us speak and eat. Proper eating can lead to better digestion of food. Speaking allows us to communicate our thoughts and feelings to other people. Both are important, and when patients are missing teeth or dealing with teeth that are broken or chipped, it can negatively impact the way they look and feel. This is why Dr. A of Philadelphia offers a wide range of restorative and cosmetic procedures. One commonly used treatment for broken teeth is that of dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a composite resin material that is used to cover up areas of concern. It can be molded to a tooth to help repair it after damage. It can be placed over the front facing of a tooth to improve the aesthetics and cover up imperfections including staining and breakage. Dental bonding can also be used between teeth to cover up small gaps that would otherwise need to be improved with months of orthodontics.
Dr. A finds dental bonding to be a fabulous way for patients to address problem areas in the smile quickly and easily. This material is placed on the teeth, filed down, and polished for impeccable results. Patients will find that they cannot distinguish between the composite resin bonding and their natural tooth structure. Dental bonding is a great alternative to porcelain veneers, but will not last as long and is not resistant to staining. However, it is affordable, fast, and effective at repairing the smile as needed.
