What is composite bonding? This is process where Dr. Bloom use composite resins (literally glass-like particles), that when bonded to the teeth (using an adhesive technology)restores their strength and lustre.
Why is it less invasive when restoring teeth back to health? One of practice mottos is treat as conservatively as possible. If we don’t need to take away tooth structure to restore, we won’t. Dr Bloom loves working with composite resins—when bonded with adhesive technology, your restored tooth is stronger than your natural tooth. And, unlike restoring with a crown (where we have to reduce the tooth so the crown fits and looks natural), with composite bonding, Dr Bloom can re-build areas that are broken, damaged or have excessive wear with minimal prep. Replacing old, broken down fillings with the composite bonded inlays and onlays (milled in-house) is a crowd pleaser. The bonded restoration is also highly aesthetic, when done by a Master Restorative Dentist you can’t tell between restored teeth and natural. Given Dr Bloom’s advanced skill level, he also works with layered composite for purely cosmetic purposes, creating goreous direct composite veneers.
How long with composite bonding last? At least ten years, and if there’s any breakdown we can do touch-ups. As composite is more porous, over time it will stain from coffee and wine.
GIven his skills working with composite, Dr Bloom offers a brilliant option to the more invasive, and out moded treatments: crowns: porcelain onlays, inlays and out moded amlgam fillings.
Dr. Bloom is highly skilled in all areas of composite bonding, having taken hundreds of hours of advanced training in working with bonded and milled composite.
For all restorative treatment (even the simplest), Dr. Bloom will check your bite until he’s assured that you’re in harmony—your joints (TMJs) are in their resting position, so your fascial muscles stay calm.
