Bonding/Tooth Coloured Filling

Enhance Smile

What is it?

Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair tooth damage caused by decay or tooth wear. Unlike veneers or dental inlay/onlay, which are customised and manufactured in a laboratory, bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth.

When to use it?

Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth or close spaces between teeth. It also can be used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay.

Key information regarding Tooth Coloured Filling

Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures.
The composite resin can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
The composite resin isn’t nearly as strong as a natural tooth and can chip and wear over time.
The resin can stain easily and its shade will ultimately change with time.
Bonding usually lasts several years before it needs to be repaired or replaced.
