Versatile Tooth-Colored Fillings Reviewed by Novato Cosmetic Dentist

Written by Dr. McConnell on Oct 14, 2014

At our Novato Cosmetic Dentist office we use only the most updated treatments that not only correct dental problems, but also beautify your smile. We use versatile tooth-colored fillings, an example of a procedure that does both.

Advances in dental technology have produced some really amazing materials and procedures that were unavailable just a few years ago. These improvements enable us to offer updated treatments like tooth-colored fillings that protect your oral health and leave you with a bright, beautiful smile.

Advantages of Tooth-Colored Fillings

The composite material that is used for tooth-colored fillings is durable and resilient. From an aesthetic perspective, the great thing about 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 tooth-colored fillings to address a number of dental concerns:

  • Repair broken or cracked teeth
  • Fill in minor chips
  • Alter the shape of irregular teeth
  • Fill in gaps between teeth
  • Replace darkened or deteriorating silver fillings

Preserving Healthy Tooth Structure

Another important advantage of using composite material for fillings is that we need to 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.
