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.
Bonding is applying composite resin bonding material to chipped, stained or worn teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile. This is a lower cost way to restore or enhance your smile.
Bonding and tooth-colored fillings are obvious improvements over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
The doctors do provide both types of fillings, depending on your preferences and your budget. They will discuss the features of each type if you'd like more information.
