Bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin that blends into the tooth structure. It is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored teeth and provide a functional, aesthetic restoration. Composites are used mainly for small to mid-sized cavities that need to withstand moderate pressure from everyday use. They can be applied on front or back teeth and are a good choice for people who prefer natural-looking fillings.
Composite fillings “bond” with your teeth. They are available in a variety of tooth-colored shades that closely match the appearance of your natural teeth. However, bondings can stain and are more prone to fracture than other cosmetic treatments such as Bioclear and porcelain veneers.
