Tooth color restorations/bonding

Tooth color restorations or fillings are also referred to as composites, because they are composed of a
complex molecular structure of a resin matrix and fillers.

Tooth colored restorations are actually bonded to remaining tooth structure. This property of resin
restorations makes them a very conservative approach to tooth restoration after cavities removal.

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied
and hardened with a special light, which ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve
person's smile.

For What Conditions Is Dental Bonding Considered?

·     Dental bonding is an option that can be considered:

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede
