At the dental office of Jerry L. Butler DDS MAGD, we are pleased to offer our patients the benefits of cosmetic dentistry to help you create a beautiful, healthy smile you can be proud of. Three of our common cosmetic dentistry treatments are white dental fillings, dental bonding, and dental inlays and onlays that improve your smile’s appearance while fixing flaws and problems in a tooth.
3 Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Dental bonding: One of the least invasive tooth treatments, dental bonding can improve the look of your smile using composite resin material. After bonding the resin to a problem tooth, it is then shaped and sculpted to repair the tooth’s flaws. Once it has hardened, it is trimmed and polished to give you a lasting, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Dental bonding is used to close spaces between teeth, lighten discolored teeth and fix chipped or cracked teeth.
White dental fillings: These discreet dental fillings help restore a damaged tooth’s health, strength and structure. Unlike silver amalgam fillings that stand out in your smile, white composite dental fillings repair a tooth while maintaining its natural beauty. White dental fillings are used to fix minor and moderate tooth damage like a cavity, fractured or chipped tooth.
Dental Inlays & Onlays: If a tooth has damage from decay or injury, a dental inlay and onlay can restore the tooth’s look and function. Made from porcelain or composite resin material, these “partial crowns” can repair a damaged tooth when a filling alone can’t and without the extensive treatment of a complete dental crown. Inlays and onlays are useful for maintaining your natural tooth structure while blending into your smile seamlessly. Our dentist places an onlay on a tooth to cover a cusp while an inlay is used to fill the area between the cusps.
