Bonding and White Filling
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your child smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give to your child a fresh, new smile.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding is the first choice of treatment for both primary ("baby") and permanent teeth. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
