Are you suffering from tooth decay? Do you need your cavities filled, but want to avoid metal fillings? Well, with tooth-colored fillings, that'sbonding and contouring no problem. Here in Mississauga, ON, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Brian Kaplansky and Dr. Parneety Randhawa can help you get the healthier and whiter smile you want.

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite resin, are used during dental bonding procedures. The composite is made of plastic resin and a filler of finely ground glass-like particles and is used to fix issues, such as:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Fractures
  • Decays
  • Discolored and stained teeth
  • Short teeth

Fillings and Dental Bonding in Mississauga

In order to prepare your teeth for the composite, your cosmetic dentist will apply an etching solution to the surface of your tooth, then the composite resin that matches the color of your teeth is applied and molded to the right shape. The last step consists of the composite being hardened in place with a curing light.

Advantages of Tooth-colored Composite

After your doctor has finished the procedure, your teeth will look natural, especially if the tooth being filled is visible while you smile. Some other advantages include:

  • Unlike silver amalgam, the fillings won't cause your teeth to turn a gray tint over time and are safer.
  • As mentioned before, your teeth will look natural, so you won't feel self-conscious when you smile.
  • The composite strengthens your teeth, so you can enjoy your meals without having to worry about applying too much pressure on your tooth and breaking, or cracking, it again

Maintaining your New Bonding

Dental bondings require the same care as all your teeth. Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day, after breakfast and before bed, and floss at least once. This will help keep your teeth healthy and avoid new cavities from flourishing in your new tooth-colored fillings, or any of your other teeth.
