Invisible Fillings Washington DC
Bonded composite restorations have become the filling material of choice for small to moderate size fillings. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth. Most patients prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay. When decay or damage is more extensive, bonded porcelain or gold may be more appropriate.
Bonded composite is less expensive than other restorations and usually can be completed in one visit to our office. However, composite stains more easily and is not as strong as porcelain or metal. If it does break chip, tell your doctor. The bonding can generally be easily patched or repaired in one visit.

"Dr. Bowers and his staff are phenomenal. For years I rarely smiled with my teeth showing due to a wide gap between my front teeth and discoloration from smoking and drinking coffee. Dr. Bowers showed me how all these problems could be corrected. The result: a complete stranger complimented me on my “million dollar smile."
