Tooth Colored Bondings and Fillings

Sometimes just a single tooth can make us feel self-conscious about our smile. It may have a wide space, be chipped, or have a developmental discrepancy that keeps it from blending in with the rest of the teeth.

Composite bondings are simple steps that make a big impact.

Placing a small tooth-colored restoration such as bondings onto a tooth helps to re-create the normal tooth structure. Unlike traditional fillings, bondings can be placed on various surface areas of the teeth, from chipped edges to smooth surfaces. Most of the time, patients elect to have bonding if only one or two teeth have chips, are spaced widely apart, or have an enamel discrepancy. A bonding treatment takes just a short time to complete, and can be combined with most dental visits when scheduled in advance.

Replace old silver fillings with white composite

As older silver fillings age, they leak material into the tooth enamel. This creates a grey or bluish hue on the tooth, and is visible when people laugh, talk or smile. Thankfully, old fillings can be removed and replaced with tooth colored composite fillings. Selecting to have this done can be for cosmetic reasons, but it is also a common restorative process as well.
