Enhance your smile with Bonding & Cosmetic Fillings
Tackle each day with your best smile and repair your decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth with bonding and cosmetic fillings. At some point in life, most of us will have a cavity that needs to be filled. Dental fillings are the most common type of dental procedure that is used to extend the life of the tooth and avoid more serious dental work. Book your appointment with Sheppard Village Dental and keep that smile healthy and happy.
Candidates for Dentures
Did you know that around one quarter or adults over the age of 65 are missing all of their teeth? Dentures are a common and respectable solution to missing teeth. They are so dependable and natural-looking that you’ve probably spoken to someone with dentures and didn’t even know it. Do you think you might be a good candidate for dentures? To be a good candidate for this restorative treatment you should:
Wish to replace several or all of your teeth. There are alternative solutions available if you wish to replace just one or two teeth.
Have a healthy jawbone. After you lose a tooth, your jawbone will slowly become thin and less able to support a denture-- especially an implant-supported denture.
Be ready to take good care of your dentures at home and with routine cleanings and checkups!
The Bonding & Whitening Process
No longer are the days of unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding lasts and can be completed in just one appointment. The bonding process is safe, affordable and an attractive solution for many dental problems.
Step 1: Adding the adhesive gel
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth.
Step 2: Polishing the tooth
After the resin has been applied an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
With the advancements in dental technology, bonding typically lasts for years. It is important to continue your regular preventive maintenance by brushing, flossing, and attending your scheduled appointments to increase the longevity of your bonding.
