Here at Hoke Road Dental, Dr. Rani Ramnath understands how important your smile’s appearance is for your self-confidence. Sometimes minor alignment issues with one or more teeth in your smile can cause excess wear and tear in the tooth enamel.

As time goes by, this dental attrition can compromise or chip your tooth enamel. Without timely treatment, this area could foster a new cavity.

One way to repair a minor dental attrition on a tooth in your smile is to have your dentist apply a composite filling. This is a special type of dental plastic that can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding tooth enamel.

To ensure a strong bond, your dentist will need to remove a miniscule amount of tooth enamel from the area of dental attrition. The composite material will then be applied and shaped to match smoothly with the surfaces of the tooth. Once it has been hardened by a dental-grade ultraviolet light, the filling will repair the tooth for a long time to come.

If you live in the Clayton, Ohio, area and you have one or more teeth suffering from excess wear and tear on the tooth enamel, you should call 937-832-8000 to seek treatment at Hoke Road Dental.
