Dental Bonding (Composites)
When a cavity is removed, there is oftentimes a space left in the tooth. Composites are tooth color (metal-free) fillings that act like a tooth substitute and help “fill” up the space left behind by the old cavity. Learn more about the reasons and process of dental bonding at Blue Wave Smiles.
In instances when too much of a tooth’s structure is removed, from cavities, to cracks and fractures, fillings just aren’t enough. In these cases, a crown is crucial to help protect the tooth from damage during our daily uses such as chewing and talking. Learn more on our dental crowns page.
