Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry in St. PaulBonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years.

Bonding for a smoother tooth

Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice.

Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.

Inlays and onlays to repair your teeth

Inlays and onlays are fillings that are made of cast porcelain or gold alloy. They are cemented or bonded into the prepared tooth replacing the critical area of the tooth.

An inlay usually fits into the central biting surface of the tooth and may include one or more of the sides of the tooth.

An onlay usually has a larger area of coverage, and most often includes one or more of the large cusps of a tooth
