Composite resin material used in tooth bonding can match the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth can be used to fix just about any problem, including chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, building up worn down areas and making a crooked tooth appear straight.
Resin material can even be used to build an entire set of veneers. It's a huge misconception that veneers can only be made of porcelain. In fact, there has been excellent, natural-looking results using composite resin bonding, which is a very long-lasting and versatile material.
The key lies in the dentist's understanding of the tooth structure, the science of color and the artistic ability to sculpt the teeth. As a board-certified prosthodontist, Dr Barsky has advanced specialty training in creating optimal oral aesthetics.
During the process, a diluted acid is applied to the tooth enamel to produce a surface which looks like a series of microscopic mountains and valleys. This area is then filled with a liquid plastic that adheres to the surface of the tooth when hardened and allows the further bonding of a composite filling material. This composite can be artistically shaped into the form and color of a natural-looking tooth. The average tooth bonding application may last from five to eight years.
Metal Free Fillings
Caring for your teeth should enhance your smile, not detract from it. Metal free fillings are one advancement in cosmetic dentistry that can preserve your unforgettable smile.

Comfort and Function

Because Dr. Barsky is a board certified prosthodontist and has been specially trained in neuromuscular dentistry, he takes great care to create a comfortable, optimal bite with your new filling. With a proper bite established for your fillings, you can avoid developing discomfort, headaches, or a broken tooth later.
Superior Materials Make the Difference
The grey, amalgam fillings used in the past can contain mercury, and become darker and more obvious over time. Many people today are concerned about the effects of mercury and their health. This is one reason why our dentists don't use metal fillings, and offer the safest choice in materials.
