Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a technique used to improve the appearance of your teeth. The term “composite” refers to a tooth-colored blend of materials, either plastic or resin, which is bonded to an existing tooth. Bonding is ideal for fixing chipped or cracked teeth, hiding discoloration on the tooth’s surface, or reducing the gaps between teeth. Whatever the specific intent, composite bonding creates more esthetically pleasing teeth and a brighter smile. Unlike bridges or crowns, composite bonding requires little, if any, removal of the original tooth.

Tooth-colored fillings (bonding) can also effectively treat cavities without having to remove large amounts of the natural tooth structure. Not only do you not have those unsightly metal fillings, you also have a tooth that is much stronger.
