Sometimes little things can be the most frustrating.

Smartphones have made our lives easier in a lot of ways … unless we can’t get a signal. Fast food (while not healthy) does give us a quick way to grab dinner on busy nights … unless they run out of what we want.

Our smiles are one of the ways we show other people how we are feeling … but a chipped tooth or a cavity can make us self-conscious about letting other people see our teeth.

At McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry, we can’t do anything about your phone or your food, but we can help fix problems with your smile. Dental bonding and tooth-colored fillings can restore the appearance and the function of your teeth. You can have a natural-looking smile once again.

Call 704-766-8662 if you would like to schedule an appointment at our Charlotte, NC dental office for either of these services.

Dental Bonding

It doesn’t take much to chip a tooth. Biting into a nut, a piece of hard candy, or even a piece of ice can cause a small part of your tooth to break away.

It might seem small, but we are quite aware of how big an impact it can have on your smile. Many patients come to our office who felt embarrassed by the chips and cracks in their teeth. You should feel comfortable with your smile, which is why we offer bonding as one of our cosmetic options.

Bonding is an easy and effective way to repair your teeth and rebuild your confidence in your smile.

The resin used for bonding is applied to your teeth as needed. It is hardened and polished so it looks like a natural part of your smile. It’s the type of cosmetic change that people won’t know about unless you tell them yourself.

If you want to fix a flaw in your smile, bonding might be your best option.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

According to national health officials, more than 90 percent of Americans will have at least one cavity during their lives. That’s a lot of tooth decay, and that means a lot of fillings.

If you had a cavity years ago, you may have a metal filling in your mouth. From a functional standpoint, a gold or amalgam (mercury blended with other metals) filling will restore the function of your teeth and protect it against further decay.

But having metal in your mouth also can leave you feeling less confident about your smile.

This is another time when our tooth-colored resin comes in handy. Whether you have a new filling or it’s time to replace an old, worn-down metal filling, we can give you a filling that matches the natural color of your tooth.

The resin can do all the things metal fillings do without becoming a distraction when you speak or smile. For a filling that restores the function of your teeth as well as the natural appearance of your smile, our metal-free fillings are a great option.
