5 Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings and Bonding from the Novato Cosmetic Dentist

Written by Dr. McConnell on May 14, 2019

The Novato cosmetic dentist is committed to providing services that not only treat and correct problems but also enhance the appearance of your smile. Bonding and tooth-colored fillings are two examples of procedures that do both.

Advances in dental technology have produced some really amazing materials and procedures that weren’t available just a few years ago. These improvements allow us to offer updated treatments like bonding and tooth-colored fillings that protect your oral health and leave you with a bright, beautiful smile.

5 Advantages of Bonding and Tooth-Colored Fillings

The composite material that we use for both bonding and tooth-colored fillings is durable and resilient. From an esthetic perspective, the real advantage of using this material is that it can be shaded to match the exact color of your natural teeth.

Since they blend so perfectly with your natural teeth, the Novato cosmetic dentist can use this tooth-colored material to address a number of dental concerns:

  1. Fill in minor chips
  2. Alter the shape of irregular teeth
  3. Fill in gaps between teeth
  4. Replace darkened or deteriorating silver fillings

Preserving Healthy Tooth Structure

One other important advantage of using composite material for fillings is that our dentist can remove only the decayed portion of the tooth to place a filling that restores your oral health. It is our goal to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible to keep your smile whole and healthy for many years.
