What is Dental Bonding?
Ideal for repairing small chips and fractures, dental bonding utilizes composite resin, which is the same material Dr. Patel uses for dental fillings. Composite is easy to work with because it's pliable, so Dr. Patel can mold it and fill in areas of chipping and wear on your tooth. He can also customize it to match the color of your tooth, so it blends naturally with your smile. Composite is durable, and it can potentially last for many years with excellent brushing and flossing.
What is Dental Contouring?
While bonding adds to your tooth structure, dental contouring removes small amounts of your enamel to smooth and shape your teeth. Contouring can smooth jagged edges, reshape teeth, and even out teeth that are different lengths. Dental contouring is a great way to create the smooth beautiful smile you've always wanted.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Gone are the days of unsightly metal fillings in your mouth now that we have composite resin. When tooth decay has caused damage to your tooth, composite allows Dr. Patel to restore your tooth while keeping a natural and appealing appearance. With composite, Dr. Patel is also able to maintain more of your natural tooth structure as it requires less enamel to be removed for placement. Composite is a durable and reliable replacement for the metal fillings of the past.
