Dental Bondings & Fillings
Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth during which a white (or a tooth-colored shade) filling is applied directly to the tooth. Allowed to cure, the material actually "bonds" with the tooth. Although less than other procedures, bonding is more susceptible to staining, chipping, and breaking. Should repair be required, allow a single visit.
The bonding material can also be used to fill teeth after the decay has been removed, and since the bonding material is white in its basic form, it has replaced silver amalgam fillings in both popularity and safety.
