Dental bonding and dental fillings are among the simplest and most conservative treatments available to improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a healthy and naturally-beautiful smile. When you visit Suave Dental Group, our dentists will examine your mouth and discuss your smile goals with you to determine which treatment will be more beneficial for you. To learn more about dental bonding and fillings in Modesto, California, and to set up an appointment with our skilled dentists, 


DENTAL BONDING

Dental bonding is often recommended to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve teeth that are oddly shaped, restore teeth which are chipped or cracked or to improve the appearance of teeth which are severely discolored. This cosmetic treatment is among the most conservative ways to improve the appearance of your smile, as it involves little if any removal of your original tooth structure, and can be completed in a single appointment.

When you receive dental bonding, our dentists will use a tooth-colored resin material. This material is placed on the tooth structure and shaped to fit your tooth and correct cosmetic flaws. It is then hardened, trimmed and polished to provide you with a long-lasting solution for your smile.


COMPOSITE DENTAL FILLINGS

Dental fillings are a type of restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, such as cavities or minor chips. Our dentists uses only composite (tooth-colored) fillings, as they produce not only a more natural-looking result, but also a long-term solution which works with your tooth structure to strengthen it.

Your dental filling can be placed in just one appointment. First, we will remove any damaged or decayed tooth structure and clean your tooth thoroughly. The filling will then be placed and shaped to match the contours of your tooth. Our dentists will then harden the filling and polish it to complete your treatment.

If you have any questions about dental bonding or fillings, please feel free to contact our office. We will be happy to provide you with additional information and help you schedule a consultation with our dentists.

DENTURES

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing several teeth or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentists may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Our dentists may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth; dentures can improve your ability to properly speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and enhance the overall beauty of your smile. Your dentures will be custom made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically, and securely. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how dentures can improve your smile!

Achieve a picture-perfect smile with dental veneers! Veneers can dramatically improve your smile, covering up the flaws and imperfections in your teeth to give you a natural and beautiful smile which you can enjoy for years to come. Veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentists may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucency of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.

Our dentists may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:

  • Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
  • Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
  • Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
  • Correct slightly crooked teeth
  • Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn, or fractured our professionally trained dentists and hygienists can assist with any dental issue.
