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 tooth structure.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive resin that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over traditional silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for many years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
