Bonding improves the look of your teeth as it is a light colored filling. The filling compound “bonds” with your teeth and results in a very natural look because they come in a large variety of shades to match your natural tooth color. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about dental bonding.
Why choose dental bonding?
Bonding is often used instead of the more common amalgam fillings. A lot of our patients choose the bonding option over amalgam as they are far less noticeable because of their color. Depending on the amount of decay the tooth has endured, bonding fillings can be used on both front and back teeth.
Pros and cons
The advantages of bonding is that it can usually be completed in just one visit to our office and they are not as costly as other cosmetic options. The downside of bonding is that when compared to other options, they tend to break more easily and can stain. Should your bonding ever chip or break, get in touch with us right away, patching or repairing you bonding can usually be done in just one appointment.
