Your options for dental bonding have never been better
Dental Bonding in St. Joseph MI
Composite fillings, enamel bonding, tooth colored fillings, white fillings - there are many names for adhesive dentistry. Adhesive dentistry has come a long way in 20 years. Not that long ago dentistry had about as much choice involved as Henry Ford’s first model T. He said you could have it in any color, as long as it was black. Today you can have fillings in any color you want, and most patients choose tooth colored. Advancements in bonding and filling materials have made composite fillings a predictable and durable alternative to metal fillings. We can help you choose the best option to suit your needs, and smile.
St. Joseph, Michigan’s Choice for Inlays and Onlays
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Advantages of an inlay over a traditional filling include: the ability to better manage the shape of the tooth between the teeth, the material used is stronger than traditional fillings, and possibly improved periodontal (gum) health.
Onlays were a popular restorative choice in the middle of the 20th century when gold prices and gold’s physical properties made it the best option available. By placing a layer of gold over the biting surface of the tooth the dentists were able to correct a number of problems while keeping the vast majority of the natural tooth intact. This kept as much of the tooth white as possible. Today we are placing more and more porcelain onlays, not because of aesthetic concerns, but because the more of your natural tooth we can save, the better in the longrun.
