There are a variety of minor dental issues that distract from a beautiful smile. These issues can include slightly discolored teeth, chipped teeth, or crooked teeth. A very common procedure, used for correcting stains, discolored teeth, cracks, gaps, and acting as a filling for cavities, is known as bonding. Bonding is a simple procedure that makes use of a white filling to correct slight dental problems. What makes bonding so appealing is that the filling is available in numerous tooth-colored shades so that your dentist can match your teeth’s natural color. This is a procedure that provides visual appeal at a minor cost and with basically no discomfort. Bonding has become a natural choice for those seeking to make that great first impression with a confident smile.
Bonding has essentially replaced the use of silver fillings in many situations. The visual appeal is far greater than the highly visible silver. In many cases, while silver fillings are still functional patients who have previously had silver fillings have opted to replace the silver for more cosmetic tooth color fillings. It’s always a good time to brighten up your smile!
