Choosing Dental Bonding Instead of Fillings

If they are not treated in a timely manner, cavities can inflict considerable damage on a tooth. In severe cases, an extraction may be necessary. But many people dislike the appearance of silver amalgam fillings, which were the standard treatment for cavities for years. Some experts have also raised concerns about the potential safety issues involved with amalgam fillings. As an alternative, consider asking your dentist about dental bonding.

Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored composite material to fill in the gaps and chips on a tooth. It can be used instead of amalgam fillings, eliminating the unattractive look of metal in the mouth. This composite material is a little less durable than amalgam fillings, but it is easily repaired if it becomes chipped.

If you’re interested in dental bonding and live in New York, visit the office of Dr. Charles Marks and our dentist will develop a personalized treatment plan that preserves your beautiful smile. Call us today at (212) 279-1232 to request an appointment in our 5 th Avenue office.
