Bonding and White Filling

Bonding

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 is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.

Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for several years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems and good alternative to expensive veneers. Bonding is easier, faster and less expensive than veneers. The entire procedure can be done in one office visit. Bonding is best for minor imperfections and repairs, such as chips rather than making over an entire smile.
