Bonding and White Filling
Tooth bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
A composite resin (white composite filling) is used as a cavity filling on the affected tooth or teeth after the decay is removed. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin filing has been applied an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile. The composite resin allows to make tooth colored fillings.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, dental bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
