For the very latest in restorative dentistry technologies, look no further than Friendly Dentistry in Greensboro. Our our experienced professionals use state-of-the-art dental technology to treat a wide variety of dental problems, including but not limited to:
- Abfractions – An abfraction is a notch in a tooth that is near or beneath the gum line, usually on the cheek side of the tooth. Abfractions are usually caused by grinding the teeth or aggressive brushing with an abrasive toothpaste. Once the cause of the abfraction is identified and addressed, a filling or gum graft may be used to restore the tooth.
- Cavities – When a tooth’s enamel decays, a cavity is formed. To treat the cavity, our dentists will remove the decayed part of the tooth and replace it with a synthetic or metal filling.
- Filling failures – Occasionally, bacteria will enter the edges of a filling and cause the tooth to decay, a phenomenon referred to as a “filling failure.” Many conditions in your mouth can cause a filling to fail, including time, wear, excess moisture, and temperature changes. Although silver and resin fillings are both very durable, the above factors will eventually cause them to become worn, turn black, and wear away.
No matter which dental issue you have experienced, our restorative dentistry technology can repair any dental damage and relieve any pain you may be experiencing. In most cases, we will use dental bonding, a safe and aesthetically pleasing way to treat tooth decay, tooth fractures, and wear damage on your natural anterior and posterior teeth. In most cases, dental bonding will allow us to repair damage with a material that matches the color of your original teeth.
In addition, our Greensboro Dentists use DIAGNOdent, a Laser Caries Detection Aid, to diagnose dental decay. This painless new dental technology eliminates the poking and scraping generally associated with traditional dental treatments.
