Bonding & Tooth-Colored Fillings

At Fain Dental Arts, we understand that beautiful smiles create great first impressions. Healthy teeth are important, but the appearance of your smile can affect the way you feel about yourself and make or break personal and business relationships.

North Miami dentist Dr. Sylvan Fain offers an array of esthetic and restorative services that are meant to enhance your natural smile and restore your oral health when a problem occurs. This includes composite tooth-colored fillings and dental bonding.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Having a tooth filled is a common dental procedure, but for decades, fillings were made of silver amalgam. Today, when a patient needs a filling, they want a solution that doesn’t just improve the health of their smile but also enhances their appearance. 

Tooth-colored fillings are a composite of plastic and glass particles. These fillings are strong and durable, but they are also a good esthetic choice; composite fillings can be color-matched to your existing dental enamel to create a seamless repair. Some of our patients opt to have old, dark silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings to restore their smile's natural appearance.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a conservative procedure that uses a tooth-colored composite material to build up portions of a tooth or alter its shape and size for a more pleasing appearance. 

Dr. Fain will sit down and talk to you about your concerns so we can provide a result that meets and exceeds your expectations. Using dental composites, we can address a wide variety of esthetic dental problems:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Even out gaps between teeth
  • Treat tooth staining that resists whitening
  • Correct the appearance of misshapen teeth
  • Elongate teeth to create an even line

The composite material is carefully color-matched to the shade of your natural dental enamel. Before we begin the process, Dr. Fain prepares the tooth with an etching material to ensure a secure bond. The composite material is then applied and shaped as needed to create a beautiful smile makeover.

Cosmetic dental bonding in our North Miami dental office produces dramatic results in a short amount of time. For this reason, we are typically able to make several minor repairs during one visit.
