Dental Bonding (Tooth Colored Filling Material)
Bonding is a conservative method used to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a new filling after a cavity has been removed, or to mask stained or discolored teeth.
Bonding is composite resin which is placed and sculpted directly onto the tooth. It adheres to the tooth by a resin gel. After the composite has been applied it is hardened using an ultraviolet light. The new filling is then polished to a nice shine.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over dark silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for 5-10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
