Fillings

Dental bonding is the use of white (or tooth-colored) composite (filling material) for filling, repairing, or making aesthetic improvements to a tooth. White or tooth-colored fillings have been a preferred method of filling teeth for decades. These fillings are an excellent option for filling a small cavity, replacing a small old mercury or composite filling, and repairing an otherwise healthy broken tooth.

Limitations of the bonding material exist when the cavity or old filling is large, if the tooth to be restored has cracks or fractures, or if there is are heavy chewing forces on the tooth to be restored.
