Bonding is an option when repairing discolored, slightly-chipped or crooked teeth.
Many prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver of the amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings are less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and can be used on front and back teeth, depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
A white filling is placed on your tooth. The filling then ‘bonds’ with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
