If you have injured your mouth and cracked or chipped your tooth or teeth, which is a very common occurrence, our composite dental bonding may be the correct treatment for you. Dental bonding can also make the tooth more attractive by filling out the shape of a tooth, or if a tooth decays. In spite of our rigorous attempts promote good oral hygiene, patients will occasionally get a cavity. When, during a regular checkup, we discover a cavity or area of decay, we will repair it using a restoration known as a composite filling which will match the color of your tooth.
What Are Fillings?
It is possible to create composite fillings during one single visit to our practise. Our team will apply anesthetic to your gums and teeth. Then carefully remove any and all decayed material and apply a filling which is form fitted to take its place. To finish, your dentist will check the contours of the new composite filling, check the patient’s bite, and ask the patient how he or she feels with the appliance in place. If some changes are required, we will make them immediately in most cases.
What Is Bonding?
Bonding is a process in which we apply a composite resin that is made of special glass and plastic or from the resin that is used to repair a discolored tooth or cracked tooth. We will be able to exactly match color of your tooth so that no one will know that you have had any restoration treatments carried out. The bonding resin will adhere to the injured tooth forming an extremely tough connection.
