Bonding & White Filling

Bonding is a popular method to fill in or cover up defects in teeth with a white composite resin. An adhesive gel is placed on the tooth, and the resin is molded and sculpted over it, then hardened with UV light and polished.

Bonding can be used to fill teeth after the removal of cavities, or to cover stains, cracks, discolorations, chips, or gaps in teeth. It is a technological improvement over highly-visible silver amalgam fillings and applications usually lasts more than 10 years.
