Bonding and White Filling - Kelowna Dental Office
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, to cover up stains or discolored teeth as well as a filling after a cavity has been removed. In our office, Dr. Burlacu is not using dental amalgam (silver filling ) but only white filling material.
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 a special light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Bonding is an obvious improvement and more conservative treatment over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
