What your dentist in Chatham, New York wants you to know

Bright White TeethIt’s time to think differently about dental fillings. That’s because today’s dental fillings do more than just fill-in a cavity. Today’s dental fillings restore biting function of your teeth, and they can also enhance the appearance of your smile. Dr. Domenic Riccobono at Countryside Dental in Chatham, New York wants to share the many benefits of tooth-colored fillings.

When you choose tooth-colored fillings, you will benefit from a strong filling material that:

  • Is bonded to your tooth surface with strong cement
  • Can hold your tooth together, strengthening it
  • Doesn’t weaken the tooth the way large metal fillings sometimes can

When you choose tooth-colored fillings, you will benefit from a cosmetically beautiful filling material that:

  • Can be color-matched perfectly to your teeth
  • Can be sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth
  • Will provide virtually invisible results that blend with your smile

Tooth-colored fillings use composite, a unique liquid resin with unique properties that make it possible to match or change the color and shape of existing teeth. The composite is placed and sculpted as a liquid, and then hardened with an ultraviolet light.

Tooth-colored fillings can restore your biting function by repairing teeth that are:

  • Decayed, chipped, or damaged
  • Cracked, fractured, or broken
  • Worn-down, eroded, or abraded

They can also restore the beauty of your smile by correcting cosmetic issues like these:

  • Enamel defects
  • Stains and discolorations
  • Tooth overlap and gaps between teeth

Treatment is quick, easy, and comfortable. Most procedures can be completed in one appointment.
