Bonding and White Fillings

AGD Member
 

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 an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, a very bright blue light is used to harden the resin, which is then trimmed and polished to give you a fresh, new smile.

We always use bonded fillings on anterior teeth and areas that are easily visible.  Bonded composite resins can also be used in the back of the mouth, especially on small to moderate fillings.  Composite resin fillings can replace unsightly old silver amalgam fillings in many cases.
