Bonding and White Fillings
Another technique that can be used to improve your smile is bonding. Bonding is commonly used to alter gaps in teeth or cracks, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to hide stains or discolored teeth.
The tooth or teeth being evaluated will be treated with a composite resin. The resin is then molded, sculpted and placed on to an adhesive gel that is on the teeth. Once the resin is administered, it is hardened using an LED light. It is then polished giving you a bright new and improved smile.
Bonding is a choice that is more popular than silver amalgam fillings. Recent improvements in dental technology allow for bonding to lasts for over 10 years. It is an inexpensive, harmless option for many dental issues.
