Bonding and fillings are a cosmetic procedure used by our Prescott Valley dentists to help repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, fractures, or cracks. During the procedure, Dr. Larson will remove the damaged parts of the tooth and replace it with a composite bonding and filling. This cosmetic procedure is easy and minimally invasive meaning that patients can leave the dental office with newly restored teeth.
Additionally, the bonding and filling treatment is extremely durable and made to match the rest of your teeth. Their tooth-colored nature gives them a natural appearance that blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile. However, it’s important to note that much like other restorative treatments, they’re not permanent and might need to get replaced in a few years time.
Why Choose Bonding and Filling?
The bonding and filling restorative procedure is a great option for individuals seeking to repair their damaged smiles. Not only is it minimally invasive and durable, it’s also affordable and can restore the look of a smile in one single appointment.
Bonding and fillings are great for:
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Closing space between teeth
Placing Composite Bonding and Fillings
This cosmetic procedure consists of a few simple steps. First, Dr. Larson will numb the damaged tooth with a local anesthetic and proceed in removing all existing and visible decay. Once our Prescott Valley dentists remove the decay and determine that the tooth is clean, they’ll place resin in the tooth and remove any excess material. As a finishing touch, the tooth will be polished to complete the look.
Once the treatment has been completed, our Prescott Valley dentists will give you specific instructions on follow up care.
