Restorative Dentistry

Look to Friendly Dentistry for the latest technologies in restorative dentistry. Dental bonding is the safest and most aesthetically pleasing way to treat decay, fractures or wear damage on your natural anterior and posterior teeth. Our experienced professionals use state-of-the-art technology to treat a variety of dental problems:

Greensboro fillings, teeth replacement and other restorative dental care

  • Abfractions - An abfraction is a notch in a tooth, near or under the gum line, usually on the cheek side of the tooth. Abfractions are usually caused by grinding teeth or aggressive brushing using an abrasive toothpaste. Once the cause of the abfraction is addressed, a filling or gum tissue may be used to restore the tooth.
  • Cavities - When a tooth has decayed, a cavity is the result. It is important to remove the decayed part of the tooth and replace it with a filling, a synthetic material that lays over the exposed part of the tooth once the cavity has been removed.
  • Filling failures - A filling is considered failing when the edges of the filling allow bacteria to enter the space between the filling and the tooth, which can lead to discomfort and infection. A silver filling or resin filling are both very durable, but will eventually need to be replaced. Many conditions in your mouth could cause a filling to fail, including time and wear, moisture in the mouth and temperature changes. Over time they become worn, turn black or the edges may wear away. There are many types of restorations for a filling failure.

We can show you the benefits of dental bonding using tooth-colored fillings for repairing broken teeth, restoring decayed portions of teeth, matching teeth in proportion or color, or replacing old fillings in order to prevent tooth loss.

Friendly Dentistry lives up to its name in restorative dentistry. We use DIAGNOdent, a Laser Caries Detection Aid, to diagnose dental decay—a painless new technology that eliminates the poking and scraping associated with locating decay in the past.
