Bonding and White Filling
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks and gaps in teeth, as a filling material after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains on discolored teeth.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive primer that is painted on the tooth after the tooth is conditioned with acidic gel. After the composite is placed, it is cured with a special light initiating the hardening of the resin. This new resin is trimmed and polished providing you with a fresh new smile.
Bonding is an obvious esthetic improvement over silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for many years.
It is a safe, affordable and an attractive solution for many dental problems.
