The Latest Advances In Dental FillingsDental technology continues to advance at an alarming rate, and this has proven to be beneficial to doctors and patients alike. Let us dive into the dental filling progressions that our dentists are currently employing.

Aesthetic bonding

When you hear the word aesthetic, what runs to your mind? Beauty and attractiveness in appearance, right? Our doctors offer a variety of aesthetic bonding techniques that greatly improve the appearance of your teeth. Ever heard of tooth-colored restorations? Restorations are made in the laboratory. They are a form of indirect filling material that works hand in hand with an impression. You now need not worry about a fragmented or decayed tooth. We guarantee you that you leave our facility looking better and more natural. The current bonding material that we use is called resin, a plastic-like substance that is glossier and lasts longer than what was used in the past. You may find it thought-provoking to know that the bonding material comes in different shades. This means that our dentists will use the precise shade as that of your original tooth. You, therefore, need not worry about your teeth not looking alike. Technological advancement has brought about the shift from the gold and amalgam fillings that were used in the past to the tooth-colored porcelain or composite types of fillings and bonding.

Direct versus indirect filling

Regardless of the waiting time, indirect fillings have a supplementary gain. While in the lab, they undertake further treatment while under pressure and the subjection to high temperature makes them stronger and more luminous. As compared to direct filling, which is an instant process and less time. In deciding what kind of tooth filling to settle for, our doctors consider two things. Firstly, the size of the filling and the extent of the decay. The location of the issue has a big bearing as well. Call us today for dental filling services.
