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. In essence, bonding may be considered to be "veneering with composite."
Fillings are when composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the composite has been placed a LED light is used to cure the composite, making it hard. The filling is then polished to give it a smooth feel and beautiful, natural look.
Composite Fillings and Bonding are obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts quite a long time. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
