Other Cosmetic Dental Options Gardena, CA

Cosmetic dental options like teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and Invisalign® are commonly performed procedures due to their popularity, but cosmetic dentistry isn’t limited to only these options.

Gardena Dental Care offers a range of cosmetic dental services to give you a smile that looks great and boosts your confidence.

What Are Composite Fillings?

Just like all fillings, composite fillings are used to restore or repair decayed teeth. What makes them different is that they are made from a specialized, tooth colored material.

So, while traditional fillings are made of amalgam and leave obvious metal in your mouth, composite fillings look like your natural teeth.

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, if you have amalgam fillings, they can be replaced with composite fillings instead, for a smile that brings the right kind of attention. If you are getting a cavity filled and you want your smile to still look like it always has, ask your dentist for composite fillings.

Composite fillings last for years and protect your teeth from bacteria buildup that could lead to tooth decay down the line.

What is the Composite Filling Process?

The composite fillings procedure is simple and is usually done in one appointment. The area around the tooth being filled is first numbed with anesthesia. Next, the dentist will clean the area, removing any bacteria and decay.

After this, the space is filled with the composite material that matches your natural teeth color. Once the cavity is filled, your tooth is shaped and polished, reviving its original shape and functionality.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is similar to composite fillings as it also makes use of a tooth-colored material. While fillings are a treatment for tooth decay, dental bonding is used to change the color and shape of your teeth altogether.

An affordable and highly effective alternative to porcelain veneers, dental bonding is used for common issues, like:

  • Cracked, chipped or broken teeth
  • Closing spaces between teeth
  • Worn down teeth
  • Stained and discolored teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Receding gum lines

What is the Dental Bonding Process?

Patients receiving dental bonding should arrive to the dentist with freshly cleaned teeth. (If you are overdue for a dental cleaning, make sure the cleaning is done before your dental bonding procedure). The dentist then chooses the closest color to your natural teeth and creates the resin material that will be used for bonding.

Next, the surface of your tooth is roughened, and a special fluid is applied. Both help the resin material attach to the tooth. The resin material is then applied to your teeth, where the dentist molds it into the appropriate shape, using UVA light waves to harden the material in seconds.

Finally, the resin is trimmed and smoothed until it feels and looks just like your natural teeth.

Dental bonding is done right in the dentist office and can be completed in one visit, especially if only a few teeth are being restored.

How Much Are Cosmetic Dental Services?

Like many dental services, the price of composite fillings and dental bonding will depend on how many teeth need to be restored and the condition of the teeth.

At Gardena Dental Care, we provide patients with clear pricing and go over the details, so you feel comfortable. We do not begin a procedure until you have signed off on everything.

We also offer flexible payment options so that every patient can receive the services they need to have the smile they’ve always wanted.
