Bonding and Fillings

Don’t let that cavity get worse over time, it might covert into a much more complicated and costly issue in no time. And in a case of a chipped tooth, allow us to repair it and return your smile to its original look! “

A Filling… what it means…

Fillings present a method of repairing damage of a tooth triggered by cavities, split or broken teeth as well as teeth which have disintegrated due to misuse; for instance tooth grinding or nail-biting.

Porcelain, composite resin (fillings that are tooth-colored) and gold are utilized by our dental office for filling material. We use composite resins which are matched with similar color to your teeth and so utilized where a natural look is wanted.

Benefits of Composites

  • Composite fillings blend with the tooth; it does not make the tooth weak, like a silver filling does.

  • The material is able to seep into tinier gaps, enabling us to create a smaller opening.

  • It is simpler to recognize secondary decay underneath tooth colored filling.

  • It is simple to repair them if damaged.

  • Metal wastes to be thrown away that are not harmful, which are not dangerous to surroundings, without mercury allergy risk.

  • White fillings or composites last around 7 to 10 years.

Post-treatment care

To make sure no other filling is required, adhere to healthy hygiene habits. Consult your dentist often for cleanings; utilize toothpaste which has floss and fluoride often.

Why is it necessary for me to replace my filling?

With time, some fillings shall become worn and require replacement. They can experience staining and discoloration. They are exposed to a lot of pressures when you chew and germs consume food remains and create an acid which leads to tooth decay that can become serious.


Dental bonding is a process where a resin material which is tooth-colored is applied and solidified with a particular light. Eventually, the material is ‘bonded’ to the tooth so as to:

  • Fix decayed teeth (to fill cavities, composite resins are utilized)

  • Fix cracked or chipped teeth

  • Enhance the look of stained teeth

  • Enhance teeth cosmetically

Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding

  • Bonding is not complex nor is it costly; it normally needs a single visit to the office, there is minimal removal of tooth enamel and normally, anesthesia is not needed. But, the bonding resin is not immune to stains and crowns.

  • Also, it is not as long-lasting as materials utilized in other repair processes, like crowns or veneers and is more prone to cracking. With great overall care, your bond can maintain up to a minimum of 3 to 10 years. Patients need to follow these practices to prolong the life of the bond.

  • Sustain healthy oral hygiene such as regular dental examinations and expert cleanings.

  • Keep away from habits like biting nails or chewing pens, ice, etc.
