Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding is the use of white (tooth colored) composite filling material for filling, or repairing or making aesthetic improvements to a tooth. The procedure is technique-sensitive, which means the systems in the procedure have to be preformed precisely and without error.
 
Unlike placing mercury fillings where you essentially fill a hole, placing a composite filling takes precision and detail or the tooth bonding will fail. Done correctly however, dental bonding is an excellent highly aesthetic way for repairing, restoring or enhancing a tooth.
 
Here at Gentle Dentistry we are perfectionists at what we do, including precision tooth bonding. We have mastered these sensitive techniques, and have thousands of successful tooth bonding results to prove it.
 
White or teeth colored fillings have been a preferred method of filling teeth for decades. These fillings are an excellent option for a small cavity, replacing a small old mercury or composite filling and repairing an otherwise healthy tooth.
Limitations of the bonding material exist when the cavity or old filling is large, if the tooth to be restored has cracks or fractures, or if there are heavy chewing forces on the tooth to be restored. Sometimes a porcelain restoration is the better option than dental bonding.
