Tooth-Colored Dentistry at Hamilton Mill
One of the benefits of modern dentistry is that having a common restoration no longer needs to leave a dark mark on your smile.
Just a few decades ago, amalgam fillings and gold crowns were the standard of care. Today’s dentists use highly esthetic tooth-colored options to protect the health and the appearance of your smile.
Brian Kinsey, DMD, will always discuss all of your options with you so you can make an informed choice regarding your smile.
Many of our patients now opt for tooth-colored dentistry that looks completely natural.
Dental Bonding for Small Repairs and Cosmetics
Small chips and gaps can feel rough, collect stains, and look out of place. Cosmetic bonding uses a durable, tooth-colored material to make small repairs by adding to your existing tooth structure.
We can even use bonding to fill in narrow gaps or odd spacing between teeth for a more uniform appearance.
Beautiful Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of one tooth or completely change your entire smile. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of your natural tooth and can change the color, length, shape and also close gaps between teeth. Veneers look natural, with realistic shading and texture. Many people choose them due to their versatility and beauty.
Tooth-Colored Fillings to Restore a Decayed Tooth
Few of us will escape the need for at least one filling during our lifetimes. If you find yourself facing a cavity, Dr. Kinsey can usually solve the problem using composite. Composite is a plastic material that comes in a wide variety of colors that will match your tooth. It is a more conservative treatment option than the silver amalgam fillings of the past because we remove less healthy tooth structure.
Dr. Kinsey will remove decay from the tooth and fill the cavity with composite. After he hardens it with a special curing light, you can chew on it right away. He will polish it so it feels smooth to the tongue and looks natural.
Protective Ceramic or Porcelain Crowns
A broken tooth can be alarming!
Often, the best way to repair a damaged tooth is with a protective dental crown. We offer both lab-created porcelain crowns and porcelain with metal blends. Dr. Kinsey will discuss the benefits of each and help you make a choice that will give you many years of comfort.
Bridges to Replace Missing Teeth
A missing tooth can be embarrassing, but it also causes some significant health problems. When you have a gap in your smile, the remaining teeth may shift and cause bite or jaw-related issues.
A dental bridge fills the gap in your smile by anchoring a false tooth between two healthy adjacent teeth. Dental bridges are a fixed option, meaning they will not shift or come out while eating or laughing.
Replacing Metal Dentistry
If you have dark fillings or metal crowns, you might wish to replace your current dentistry with a more esthetic option. Dr. Kinsey can do this safely and effectively. Fillings, crowns, and bridges don’t last forever. If it is time to replace some of your dentistry, we will discuss modern, tooth-colored options with you.
