Our goal at Patrick Fields, DDS, is to help you have a healthy and beautiful smile that you can't wait to share. Modern dentistry offers Dr. Fields access to updated materials that provide us with solutions to make your smile not only healthier but also more aesthetically pleasing.
Composite resin is the material of choice for dental fillings in Cabot, so you no longer have to endure silver metal fillings that mar your smile.
Don't Delay Treatment If You Need a Dental Filling
If Dr. Fields recommends a dental filling, it's essential to repair your tooth as soon as possible. Tooth decay will gradually progress further into your tooth if we don't address it, and could eventually reach the nerve of your tooth. If this happens, the result is a painful infection that will require root canal treatment to restore your tooth.
Dr. Fields recommends dentistry using an approach based on risk assessment. A dental filling is often the least invasive way to treat a tooth, which poses less risk to your overall health. Being proactive about treating a tooth impacted by decay with a dental filling will protect both your dental health and overall well-being.
The Advantages of Using Composite Material for Dental Fillings
Besides being more aesthetic for your smile, tooth-colored fillings offer other advantages for our patients, such as:
- Excellent durability achieved by bonding the composite material directly to your tooth
- No reaction to temperature changes in the mouth like metal fillings that can cause tooth fractures
- The ability to repair small cosmetic issues through a process called dental bonding
Composite fillings also don't require as much tooth structure to be removed to place them as metal fillings do. This conservative approach preserves more of your natural tooth, which is always our priority.
We choose to offer tooth-colored composite fillings because our patients truly appreciate the aesthetics that they provide, along with the benefits and durability that they ensure.
Composite Material and Dental Bonding
If there are aspects of your smile that you're not satisfied with, you should know that your dentist in Cabot can utilize composite resin material to enhance your smile through a procedure known as dental bonding. By adding composite resin to your teeth, we can eliminate many small cosmetic tooth concerns like:
- Shape or size discrepancies
- Gaps between teeth
- Fractured or chipped teeth
- Teeth with stains or discoloration
Dental bonding is an affordable, quick, and non-invasive procedure that puts your best smile within reach.
