What Is 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 performed precisely and without error.
What To Consider With Dental Bonding
We will discuss the pros and cons of using tooth bonding for your specific situation. We will discuss all the options for fixing, filling or improving your tooth (teeth) so that you have all the information you need to decide which dental restoration is best for you. At Gentle Dentistry, we understand the precision needed to achieve top success using tooth-colored fillings.
What Are Composite Fillings?
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.
Mercury Fillings Vs. Composite Fillings
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.
Limitations to Tooth Bonding
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.
