Bonding and White Filling

 

A bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers. This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths and do not want the expense of veneers. Bondings can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained. The EPA has made a statement that in 2009 amalgam fillings because of its mercury content will be banned. Many European countries have already taken this action in late 2007.

Procedure
The bonding procedure is usually completed in one visit. The first step is to remove the decayed or unsightly portion of the tooth. The tooth is then etched with a liquid or gel and a bonding agent is then applied. This will allow the composite resin to be placed in the prepared tooth. The resin is then trimmed and polished, leaving you with a beautifully sculpted, natural-looking restoration.

Bonding Durability
Although composite resins are cosmetically pleasing and easily placed, their durability is not as strong as other types of restorations. These resins typically last from 7-10 years before they begin to chip and wear away, and the size of the restoration has a significant impact on their durability. When this happens, the restoration will need to be replaced with either another filling or if it was already a large filling, then a full coverage restoration like a crown might be indicated.
