Cover cracks and gaps in your mouth
A procedure called bonding can be used to eliminate cracks or gaps in your teeth, cover stained or discolored teeth, or fill a cavity after the decay has been removed.
A composite resin is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel and placed on affected areas of the tooth or teeth. After the resin is applied, an LED light helps to harden the resin. When the resin has hardened, it is polished to give the teeth a fresh appearance.
Durability is one the reasons bonding is currently being used more than traditional silver amalgam fillings. In many cases, bonding can last for more than 10 years and is a safe and affordable option for dentists and patients. Bonding is sure to become more popular as dental technology advances.
