Cosmetic Dentistry (Bonding, Tooth-Colored Fillings) at 32 Dental Practice, Kennesaw, GA
Everyone wants a natural looking, beautiful smile to compliment their positive attitude and outlook on life. Here at 32 Dental, we offer a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Although we offer a plethora of cosmetic dentistry offerings, two of the more popular procedures that we complete here are bonding and tooth-colored fillings.
Bonding is a restorative procedure for chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned teeth. Direct bonding adds composite resin to pre-existing teeth to re-contour, reshape, create bulk, or make the tooth longer. There are a number of times in which dental bonding is beneficial in improving one's smile. When bonding, the dentist etches the tooth’s surface and applies a bonding agent. They will then apply a resin/composite and shape it to appear like your natural tooth. Bonding is also a conservative way of giving your teeth a straight appearance when the edges are misaligned, and is also used to help fill in gaps between teeth without the need for extensive orthodontic work. Bonding typically lasts up to five years before needing a repair and does not require any special care or attention from the patient.

Tooth-colored fillings or composite resin fillings strengthen the tooth by bonding to its structure. The bonded filling creates a tight seal against bacteria. These fillings are matched to the shade of your original tooth in order to give it a natural appearance in your mouth. We are able to remove other unnatural fillings such as metal or gold and replace them with tooth-colored fillings to improve the look of your smile and make your restorative procedure look natural and unnoticeable to the average individual.
We offer a number of other cosmetic dentistry procedures and restorative options, such as crowns, bridges, dentures, and teeth whitening, among others. For every dental concern, there is a solution. Call us today at 32 Dental if you're considering a cosmetic procedure to improve the look of your smile!
Aftercare of tooth colored fillings: Avoid chewing and eating until all numbness has completely worn off. Brush and floss normally to gain healthy gum tissue. Call us if sensitivity lasts more than a few days. Rinse your mouth three times a day with a mixture of warm salt water to reduce discomfort and swelling. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Everyone at 32 dental makes you feel like you are part of their family from the moment you walk in! I would recommend them to everyone!
