When your teeth need to be restored as a result of decay or minor chipping, tooth coloured composite resin is the standard of care in Riverside South Dental Centre. It is strong, durable, bio compatible and matches the shade of your tooth. Resins are bonded onto your tooth resulting in an excellent seal between the tooth structure and the restorative material, therefore minimizing the risk of recurrent decay.
As aging silver amalgam restorations show evidence of needing replacement, composite resin renews the appearance and strength of these teeth. Our patients love the natural look of this material.
Dr. Ohanian and her Associates routinely take intra-oral photos of any areas of concern prior to treatment, mid-treatment and following treatment to better your understanding of conditions we find in your mouth. Riverside South Dental Centre are pleased to discuss our photographic findings with you.
As always, Dr. Ohanian and her Associates will discuss all the treatment options available to you and help you select the most suitable treatment for your circumstances.
