This is a tooth-colored resin material used to reform or reshape teeth and repair decay, fill cavities, close spaces between teeth, and protect exposed tooth roots when your gums recede. With touch-ups, bonding can last up to 10 years. 

Inlays and onlays 

These cosmetic covers for the cusps of your teeth are usually made of gold, composite material, or porcelain. They are used for cracked or chipped teeth that can’t be fixed with a dental filling or to repair minor to moderate tooth decay. They save the healthy part of injured teeth and help make teeth strong enough for chewing.

Dental health is essential to your overall health, and cosmetic dentistry can be a part of preserving it.

So, if your teeth need some cosmetic dental work or other dental services, make an appointment at Advanced Implant Dentistry & MedSpa of North Shore today to get started.
