A Dental Filling Might Be Used to Treat a Minor Case of Dental Attrition

Posted .

Dental attrition can occur when minor imperfections in the alignment of your teeth cause one to wear away the tooth enamel of another. As the minor physical defect starts to worsen, the compromised area of tooth enamel could encourage tooth decay, promote worsening sensitivity, and potentially lead to a significant dental fracture.


If you notice a change in texture or some other abnormality with one of your teeth, you should consider scheduling an appointment at Vacaville Dental Studio’s dental offices.


If an area of dental attrition is small Dr. Khashayar Khomejany might be able to repair it by installing a standard dental filling. This treatment can typically be performed in a single outpatient appointment and requires only minimal numbing.


Once you’re comfortable Dr. Khashayar Khomejany will remove a small amount of additional tooth enamel from the area. This will to prepare the necessary surface texture to bond the dental filling material.


The specific material that they selects for the dental filling will be based on the surface of the tooth and its appearance in your smile.


Composite dental fillings are often a good option for repairing a compromised area that will appear in your smile. They are made from a dental grade resin material that can be shaded to match the color and tone of the surrounding tooth enamel.


After preparing the dental filling material Dr. Khashayar Khomejany will use a special ultraviolet light to harden it and secure the dental filling’s bond with the healthy tooth enamel.
