White fillings, or bondings, are a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bondings can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth. A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth.
It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Bondings are an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bondings usually last for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
