Bonding is a traditional way to repair chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During the bonding, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. Because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades it closely matches the appearance of your tooth and improves its appearance.
Tooth bonding can be used instead of amalgam fillings, and in some cases are even preferred because the white color is less noticeable than the silver. Depending on tooth decay bonding fillings can be used on both front and back teeth.
Bonding less expensive than other cosmetic procedures and can generally be completed in a single office visit. However, bonding is more susceptible to staining and breaking. If this happens, please tell your doctor.
