All those people who have a complaint of cavity stopping them from eating their favorite food can now benefit from our bonding and white filling facility. A white filling is great for those not wanting to go for a silver filling. Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile and get cavity problems fixed. Bonding can be used as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth. Your decayed and discolored teeth will get a new life with a single visit.

Application of Bonding

For bonding, a composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. Composite resin is a mixture of glass and plastic and is adjusted to a person’s teeth color. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After resin’s application, it is hardened with an LED light. The final touch will be done by polishing the teeth to last the composite for a longer duration and to give you a fresh, new smile.

Advantages of White Filling

In addition to brightening the shade of your teeth, bonding and white filling can be a great solution to correct your chipped teeth and reduce gaps in your teeth to give you an elegant smile. Composite resin is one of the fast and inexpensive methods to restore your decayed teeth. It is a noticeable improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings as it gives your teeth a natural look. It creates the same color as of your teeth or can even create a brighter shade if you wish. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over ten years. The life of a filling will depend heavily on where it is placed and how often teeth, with the filling on them, come together.

Bonding and its care

The treatment needs the removal of enamel from the surface to fit the bonding perfectly on your teeth. No special care is needed for keeping the bonding intact. The routine dental care will be able to hold the bonding for a long time without visiting your dentist often to follow-up on this. However, regular dental check-ups and oral care need not be avoided. Certain precautions, like biting hard food or ice, are needed to stop the bonding from cracking. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many of your dental problems.
