Our bonded fillings include ceramic and new resin compounds that mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. These new bonded materials allow us to save as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
Our Jenison dentists are also able to use white fillings to achieve the best aesthetic results for your smile.
Benefits of bonded fillings:
- Saves more natural tooth enamel
- Matches the color and shade of your teeth
- Strong and long-lasting
- Made from safe nontoxic materials
- Little to no sensitivity after the procedure
- Easily repairable
Why We Don’t Offer Traditional Fillings
Traditional dental fillings are made from amalgam and older resin composites. Amalgams lack natural aesthetics, while older resin composites lack strength and color stability. Since we’d have to remove more tooth structure for traditional tooth fillings, we don’t offer these options to our patients. It is our standard of care to exclusively provide bonded fillings.
Many of our patients appreciate having white fillings for teeth that show when they smile and talk. Bonded fillings match the color and shade of your teeth so you can smile with confidence.
