Cosmetically Straighten and Restore Decayed Teeth

Teeth Bonding – White Fillings

White fillings are made of a reinforced composite resin material. There are different compositions depending on the application.

We use dull-but-strong for the back molars where fillings are subject to heavy biting forces. We use cosmetic-but-weaker for front teeth where the ability to match natural tooth structure is needed.

Our office exclusively uses tooth-colored composite filling material. Because of their aesthetics and high durability, cosmetics have become the material of choice for restoring small portions of the tooth.

What is Dental Tooth Bonding?

Bonding is a type of composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Bonding composites is the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth.

Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth.

After this, our cosmetic dentist will apply a bonding material and sculpt color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.


There are two type of bonding, for small corrections and for large corrections.
Composites can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps – and will match the color of your other teeth.
