Dr. Haack offers restorative dentistry that’s also esthetic, meaning the restorations blend naturally with tooth enamel for a natural, attractive result. Bonding and white fillings are used to restore cavities and are the most common form of dental restoration. Today, we offer custom-tinted, composite resin, white fillings that are metal-free and mercury-free. The resin we use for fillings is the same material we use in dental bonding to repair chips, cover stains, or close gaps between teeth.
White fillings are used both in the front and the back of the mouth to give a beautiful, restoration-free appearance. Unlike amalgam (silver) fillings, white fillings are able to blend with the tooth’s color for an unnoticeable restoration. Composites are able to change the color as well as reshape your teeth. They are used to remove stains and close minor gaps between teeth to create a straighter, brighter, and more appealing smile.
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. 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. 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.
