Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings in Vienna, VA
At Tysons Dentistry, we focus on providing services that not only treat and correct your dental problems, but also improve the appearance of your smile. Tooth-colored restorations are one example of a procedure that does both.
Recently, dental technology has produced some amazing materials that were not available just a few years ago. Dr. Shahram and Dr. Sanati spend many hours expanding their knowledge and staying current with the latest advances in dentistry. We then integrate these new technologies with our treatments to provide you with the very best that dentistry has to offer.
These innovative materials enable us to offer updated treatments like tooth-colored fillings and bonding that protect your oral health and leave you with a bright, beautiful smile.
Versatile Tooth-Colored Composites
We use a tooth-colored composite material for dental bonding and fillings that are durable and resilient. From an aesthetic perspective, the benefit is that this material can be shaded to match the exact color of your own teeth. Since tooth-colored porcelain composites blend so perfectly with your natural teeth, they can be used for a variety of restorative treatments.
Fillings are an essential treatment needed to remove decay and strengthen your teeth. Silver amalgam is very noticeable and can mar the appearance of your smile. Using tooth-colored fillings provides a solution that protects your teeth and offers an aesthetically pleasing result.
Another important advantage of using composite material for fillings and restorations is that we need only remove the decayed portion of the tooth to restore your oral health. It is our goal to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible to keep your smile whole and healthy for many years.
Bonding is an affordable, conservative procedure where tooth-colored composite material is used to:
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Conceal severely stained and discolored teeth
- Fill gaps between teeth
- Change the shape of poorly proportioned teeth
- As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
There is little or no preparation required for bonding. Once the composite is applied to your teeth, it can be shaped and polished so that it blends seamlessly with your natural tooth enamel. The bonding process is simple and can usually be completed in just one office visit.
Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain composites are also very effective when used for inlays and onlays. For cavities that are too large to be replaced by fillings, inlays or onlays are used to restore the tooth properly. The strong porcelain material is cemented onto the treated tooth to provide a durable, natural-looking result.
Treatment That Fits Your Needs
Everyone is unique and has very specific needs when it comes to dental care. After a consultation and thorough evaluation of your oral health, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan designed to ensure a healthy smile.
Please contact our Vienna dental office to arrange an appointment. At that time we will be happy to answer your questions and help you decide which type of restorative treatment is the most appropriate solution for your specific problem.
