Among our priorities here at Brentwood Progressive Dental are to keep your teeth looking good. Fillings, crowns, and bonding are just a few of the essential treatments we provide toward that end. The better the appearance of your teeth, the more confidence you have in showing it off. And smiling is associated with feeling more positive and upbeat. So it’s a win/win no matter how you think about it.
At one time, fillings were all made of metal. And while metal is still used today, it is usually reserved for back teeth, where the contrast between the color of the filling and the color your tooth will not be noticeable. Instead, our cosmetic dentist in Brentwood is pleased to have composite, porcelain, and ceramic, all tooth-colored materials to put in your teeth when you need fillings. Similarly, crowns also give you a greater aesthetic benefit when they blend in seamlessly with your tooth and the teeth around it. Porcelain and ceramic are both used, and for greater strength, it is even possible to use porcelain baked onto a metal substrate, getting the best of both worlds with the visible portion of the crown looking very much like your natural tooth color. Fillings and crowns serve specific purposes, but what if you have teeth that simply have cosmetic flaws, like being chipped, misshapen, or discolored? You may even have too much gum tissue showing. Tooth-colored composite material is utilized by our cosmetic dentist in Brentwood for bonding. Put on while soft, it can be molded to suit your needs and preferences, later being hardened using a special light for optimal durability.
With the help of our cosmetic dentist in Brentwood, there is every reason to be confident about how your teeth look when you smile, speak, or laugh. Just schedule an appointment to come in for an appointment and have your concerns met with tooth-colored fillings, crowns, and bonding.
