Cosmetic Bonding & Contouring

Are you suffering from tooth decay? Do you need your cavities filled but want to avoid metal fillings? Here in Mississauga, ON, our dentists, can help you get the healthier and whiter smile you want with tooth-coloured fillings.


Tooth-coloured 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. It is used to fix issues, such as:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Fractures
  • Decays
  • Discoloured 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 colour of your teeth is applied and moulded to the right shape. The last step consists of the composite being hardened in place with a curing light.

Advantages of Tooth-Coloured Composite

After your doctor has finished the procedure, your teeth should 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 should look natural, so you're less likely to 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 aid in avoiding new cavities from flourishing in your new tooth-coloured fillings or any of your other teeth.
