Bonded Fillings in Mississauga

In the past, tooth problems like cavities or other trauma only had one viable treatment option; metal or amalgam fillings. Thankfully, advances in the science of dentistry have led to the development of resin compounds that, when bonded to your tooth, provide a durable filling with a much more natural appearance. Composite restorations can typically be applied within a single appointment, and offer a viable alternative to metal fillings in many cases.

Extractions & wisdom teeth removal

When deciding on whether to perform an extraction the dentist is usually referring to impacted wisdom teeth. This can lead to discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay caused by the tooth growing into the mouth and pushing against other teeth. In cases like this, the dentist will most likely extract the wisdom teeth. 

 

But when it comes to extracting other teeth in the mouth, here at Dentistry by Isaac Gabay, we will do everything we can to save the tooth before exploring extraction. If the tooth has been traumatized, is badly decaying, or there is excessive bone loss around the tooth due to periodontal disease and the tooth is very loose the dentist will consider extraction to preserve the health of the teeth surrounding it, as well as your entire mouth.

The procedure of Bonded fillings

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure where composite resin (filling material) is used to cover cracks, gaps, decay, or damaged teeth for a more even smile.


This process is less invasive than metal fillings, but a little more complicated. This appointment is done in one visit and usually takes 30-60 minutes per tooth.


Your dentist will start this process by giving you a local anesthetic, to numb that particular area in your mouth. Then the dentist isolates your tooth from the saliva to dry it out and drill out the infected or cavity part of the tooth to eliminate the decay.


After that, your dentist will apply the composite resin that matches the colour of your teeth to the areas needed. A curing light is used to set the material. After filling the tooth, the composite is formed to look like your tooth.


Dental bonding procedures are performed by an expert dentist who is well experienced in restorative processes. They are guaranteed to make you satisfied with your new smile.

What are the Benefits of Bonded Fillings?

Bonded fillings offer many aesthetic and functional benefits:

 

  • It is the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental process
  • They require the least amount of tooth enamel to be removed
  • Bonded fillings harden quickly, resulting in a quick recovery period
  • Bonded fillings can be repaired if needed
  • They lessen the teeth gap and repair chipped teeth
  • Bonded fillings cause lesser tooth sensitivity and pain

How to take care of Bonded Fillings at home or after the procedure?

There are a few basic care steps to follow after a Bonded Filling procedure:
  • Follow good oral hygiene practices
  • Make proper brushing and flossing a habit
  • Do not bite hard food objects. Besides that, avoid biting fingernails, chewing on pens or ice, etc.
  • Avoid tobacco and stain-causing foods
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings

How can you take care of your teeth at home after wisdom teeth extraction?

It can take from 1-2 weeks for your oral health to fully recover from a wisdom teeth extraction. During this healing process, there are some important care tips to keep in mind:
  • Do not rinse your mouth vigorously
  • Do not drink through a straw and avoid alcoholic beverages
  • Do not brush your teeth next to the extraction site
  • Evade intense activity for a week after the surgery
  • Avoid smoking
  • Make sure to get enough rest for the first few days after the extraction

Who is eligible for a Bonded Fillings procedure?

Dental bonding is the most suitable solution for people who have healthy teeth that have minor tooth issues: chipped, cracked or discolored teeth can be fixed with bonded fillings.


This procedure is for people who want to improve the appearance of their tooth, gaps, or smile.


If you need to cover an uncovered tooth root, then you can opt for Dental Bonding.


However, you are not a candidate if your bite is inappropriately aligned or requires adjustment. Also, if there is not sufficient material remaining in your natural tooth.
