See How We Can Quickly Improve Your Smile
Tooth-bonding is really tooth-colored filling material. That’s what it is. It is one of the most conservative things we can do when someone’s looking for an improvement with their smile, and certainly if they have a cavity in one of their front teeth, we’ve used tooth-colored bonding. It’s tooth-colored filling material.
Sometimes we can make a drastic makeover for someone with just some bonding material, and sometimes they have an enamel defect, there’s a problem with their tooth, the way it grew, the color that it is. We can remove that color and replace it with the composite bonding and totally change the way in which their smile looks.
We don’t use silver fillings in this office. We believe that the tooth-colored filling materials have so many advantages over the silver fillings, and so it’s not even an option in our practice. In terms of the tooth-colored filling or the binding material, that’s what you’ll get here. It’ll blend in with your natural tooth structure. You won’t see any lines.
We’re like a cosmetic surgeon in that regard, where a cosmetic surgeon’s trying to make an incision blend in with some fold in your skin or wrinkle in your skin trying to make the area that you had stitches on disappear. It’s the same thing with the bonding. We know how to blend it in so where you don’t see the lines, so it just looks like it’s your natural tooth.
