Tooth colored composite, sometimes referred to as bonding, is a popular method to enhance the appearance of your smile. Composite bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, to cover up stains or discolored teeth. More commonly, composite is used as a filling material when decay has destroyed tooth structure.
Do you have old silver-mercury amalgam fillings breaking down? Do you not like dark silver-mercury amalgams show when you smile, laugh or talk? Composite bonding is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution to those unsightly silver-mercury amalgams.
