Bonding/White Fillings

A bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams. This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths. Bonding can be done on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained.

To the right you will see where two old amalgam fillings were replaced with composite fillings.

Procedure


The bonding procedure is usually completed in one visit. The first step is to remove the decayed or unsightly portion of the tooth. The tooth is then etched with a liquid or gel and a bonding agent is then applied. This will allow the composite resin to be placed in the prepared tooth. The resin is then trimmed and polished, leaving you with a beautifully sculpted, natural-looking restoration.

Bonding Durability


Although composite resins are cosmetically pleasing and easily placed, their durability is not as strong as other types of restorations.
