Bonding is a popular method of cosmetic dentistry to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding is simply using tooth-colored filling material 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 molded and sculpted over an adhesive layer that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin, then polished to give you a fresh new smile.
Composite resin is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding can last for decades. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
