Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings

While a cavity might seem like a minor problem, we know that it needs to be treated promptly. We want to stop it from spreading and possibly causing discomfort and further damaging your tooth.

Tooth-colored fillings, also referred to as composite fillings, are made of glass and resin particles that impart a natural, lustrous appearance to the material. We can also customize the shade of the filling material to match the appearance of existing teeth.

These qualities make composite fillings the perfect choice for restoring teeth that are visible when you smile. Another benefit of composites is that only a small portion of your healthy tooth structure needs to be removed to place the filling.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you would like to change the appearance of your teeth, you may think that your only option is high-end cosmetic dental treatments. But the same qualities that allow us to create a natural-looking repair also make composite fillings perfect for correcting minor esthetic flaws.

Cosmetic dental bonding is a conservative approach to changing the appearance of your teeth. Dr. Lee uses the composite to gradually build up portions of your tooth to alter its shape, size, color, and positioning. We can use bonding to fix a wide range of esthetic problems:

  • Fill in chipped or broken teeth
  • Close uneven gaps between teeth
  • Make teeth appear longer
  • Change the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth
  • Conceal severe dental staining that resists whitening

This method is relatively simple compared to veneers or esthetic dental crowns, and Dr. Lee can usually treat several teeth during a single appointment.
