Dental bonding in Fairfax
Dental bonding is a quick and conservative dental procedure used to repair slightly chipped, crooked, or discolored teeth. During a bonding procedure, a white filling is carefully placed onto each tooth. The filling “bonds” with the enamel of the tooth.
This bonding comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, so it can be made to closely match the appearance of your natural teeth.
Bonding material can also be used for teeth fillings instead of amalgam. In fact, many patients prefer bonded fillings because the white color is not as noticeable as the silver in amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on both the front and back teeth depending on the extent of decay and the location.
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and is normally completed in one office visit.
Bonding, however, can stain and it breaks more easily than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your doctor right away. Bonding can usually be easily patched or repaired in one visit.
