Bonding is the term we give to adhesive dentistry. Composite resins are bonded to teeth for many purposes. They can replace the old silver amalgam fillings. They are used in new fillings to repair cavities or tooth fractures. They can sometimes mask discolored teeth. They can be used to fill in gaps between front teeth. They can also be used to modify the shape of a tooth.
Bonding is not a new procedure. It has been around since the early '70's. So, many, many improvements have been made to the materials along the way.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
