Dental Bondings for Fillings

As mentioned before, dental bonding is a fast way to fix small chips and fill in gaps between teeth. However dental bonding can be used in restorative dentistry as well. Previously, many dental offices used amalgam filling to remove cavities and seal the affected area. Amalgam fillings were not very aesthetic. as they were made of different metals and left a shiny metallic appearance on dental work.

Now the resin used in dental bonding is used to replace these unsightly amalgam fillings. Dental bonding uses resin that is made with special plastics and can be colored to match your natural tooth. With new dental bonding fillings, your dental work is less noticeable and still seals off the area effectively to protect your tooth. If you have amalgam fillings, or suspect that you might have a cavity, visit our office or give us a call to have all your questions answered about dental bonding. Visit our website for more information on the procedure.
