Fillings and Air Abrasion
Most of us have had at least one filling in our lives—they are one of the most common restorative dentistry therapies. In keeping with his aesthetic standards for cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Kohler provides patients in his Wilmette office with tooth-colored fillings. He also utilizes air abrasion to gently remove decay, a precise technology which avoids noisy dental drills.
Why Should I Choose Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Composite resin is currently the most popular material for dental fillings. Its advantages over traditional restorations include aesthetics (it blends in subtly with teeth and can be contoured more easily than metal), durability, and strength.
In addition to using tooth-colored fillings for new cavities, Dr. Kohler will be happy to replace your old metal fillings and help restore your youthful smile.
Why Should I Choose Air Abrasion?
For many people, anxiety begins the second the dental office fills with the buzzing noise of a drill. Air abrasion therapy is state-of-the-art, drill-less technology used to effectively remove decay without heat, vibration, or sound. Its other advantages include:
- Often allows for more healthy tooth structure to be saved
- Reduces the risk for fracturing or chipping
- Can minimize the need for anesthesia
- Allows for more complex, multiple-site treatments in one session
