Gambrills dentist provides composite restoration fillings for happy and healthy smiles

A cavity is never fun. Before a dental restoration is placed, it can cause pain or sensitivity to the patient and, in some cases, the restoration leaves a lasting mark on the tooth that is visible to friends and family. In many dental offices across the country amalgam, or metal, fillings are still commonly used. These fillings are popular because they’re easy and durable. However, many patients and dentists are becoming uncomfortable both with the exposure to metal and the dark appearance of the fillings.

However, dental restorations at Bingham-Lester Dentistry are designed to do more than simply repair a decayed or damaged tooth. Dr. Vickii Bingham-Lester understands that the appearance of their teeth can impact the patient’s smile and self-confidence. Dr. Bingham-Lester uses a composite restoration approach, which masks the fact that there was ever damage to the tooth.

Composite dental fillings offer great benefits to patients:

  • Aesthetically pleasing – the resin is tooth colored and can be customized to be an exact match to the patient’s natural tooth color.
  • Durable – the resin bonds to the tooth and allows it to function properly. Patients can eat their favorite foods without worry. Furthermore, composite resin bonds to the tooth, creating a secure fit, which allows the dentist to remove less of the natural tooth in order to place the filling.
  • Safe – the material, which is made of powdered glass and resin, is a beautiful, metal-free alternative to traditional fillings. Additionally, the material will expand and contract similar to the natural enamel; therefore, it is less likely to cause damage to the tooth.

Dr. Bingham-Lester is committed to helping her patients keep their mouths healthy and happy. The doctor and her entire team provide gentle and compassionate care to all patients. If you live in the Gambrills area and have a damaged or decayed tooth that needs attention, call the Bingham-Lester Dentistry office today to schedule an appointment. In many cases, your filling can be completed and your smile restored in a single appointment.
