    The Advantages of Dental Bonding

    Last updated 5 months ago

    If you have a cracked, chipped, or stained tooth and would prefer an alternative to expensive veneers, dental bonding may be the ideal option for you. Read on to learn about the advantages of dental bonding.

    Dental bonding is a safe, quick, and relatively inexpensive procedure that typically only requires one visit to your dentist. Your tooth will be cleared of any decay before an etching solution is applied, which allows for placement of composite resin. Your dentist can sculpt the composite resin so that it perfectly matches your other teeth, restoring your natural smile. A dental bonding procedure can last up to about seven years before it must be replaced. This is not much of an inconvenience, as the dental bonding procedure can be done quickly and inexpensively.

    Experience the advantages of dental bonding with KFA Dental on Long Island. We offer professional dental implants and cosmetic dentistry as well as teeth whitening and Invisalign. Visit our website or call (516) 249-1188 to set up an appointment. If you live in the Suffolk County area, stop by and see us today. 

    Your Guide to the Different Types of Dental Fillings

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Dental fillings are used to fill in areas where your tooth has experienced decay. This practice can typically be done in one visit to your dentist, and it is usually not very expensive. If you need a dental filling, read on to find out which type of dental filling is right for you.

    Amalgam
    Amalgam dental fillings are the least expensive type of filling, and they are also among the most durable. Mercury makes up about half of the composition of an amalgam filling; since the other half is also made up of primarily metals, this type of filling has a silver color that will not match your teeth. However, amalgam fillings are long-lasting and they only require one visit for installation.

    Composite Resin
    Composite resin fillings are popular because they are the only type of filling that can be made to match the natural color of your tooth. They also help to protect your tooth from changing temperatures and breakages. It may take a little longer to place a composite resin filling, but only by about 10 to 20 minutes. If you have a cavity in one of your more visible teeth, composite resin fillings help to preserve their natural look. While this type of filling is more expensive than amalgam fillings, it is not as expensive as cast gold dental fillings.

    Cast Gold
    Gold is mixed with other metals to create cast gold fillings. They are very durable and usually last for more than seven years, although they can be significantly more expensive than amalgam or composite resin fillings; this is due to the high value of gold. On the upside, gold will never corrode, and cast gold fillings can handle forceful chewing. This type of filling is the only type that requires two visits.

    Tips for Getting Rid of Bad Breath

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Bad breath can be an inconvenience for your partner, your family, and yourself. If you are a doctor or a dentist or you work with your mouth in close proximity to other people’s faces, your bad breath can be inconvenient in the workplace as well. Watch this video for tips on how to get rid of bad breath.

    It is important to consistently practice good dental hygiene if you want to get rid of bad breath. Each day you should floss once and brush your teeth twice, using toothpaste and floss that has the ADA seal. Be sure to brush all of your teeth and gums as well as your entire tongue. Stay away from sugary mints because they may cause tooth decay and will only improve your breath for a short time.

    For more tips, call KFA Dental at (516) 249-1188 or visit our website. We are a Long Island dental practice that provides dental implants, teeth whitening, and cosmetic dentistry. Stop by or call us today!
