What is Teeth Bonding?
Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
Can the Bonding Technique Be Used for Fillings?
Tooth bonding can also be used for teeth fillings instead of amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
What Makes Bonding Different from Other Treatments?
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and usually can be completed in one visit to our office. The composite resin that is used in a bonding treatment is easily shaped and polished to match the natural look of your teeth. However, bonding can stain, and is easier to break than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor. The bonding generally can be easily patched or repaired in one visit.
