Bonding is a common procedure used to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding, or white composite filling material, has many uses. It 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 material is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. Once the material has been applied and sculpted, an LED light is used to harden it. The material is then polished to a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. Advancements in dental technology, have resulted in a product that may last for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental situations.
