This is a procedure in which tooth-colored materials are applied to the surface of your tooth. These fillings/bondings cover discolorations, replace tooth structure loss from decay, repair chipped teeth, replace breaks and cracks and close spaces in between. This procedure is usually completed in one visit.
The bonding process allows your doctor to match your natural teeth to various color resins that are carefully blended so the bonded tooth will look completely natural. After application, the resin is contoured into the proper shape and hardened using a special light or chemical process. It is then smoothed and polished to appear natural.
You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
