Bonding or a composite resin is the most commonly used technique for restoring teeth at this time. Bonding can be used to correct spaces in teeth, as a filling after a cavity or a silver (amalgam filling) has been removed, or to cover up discolorations in teeth.

The composite resin forms a chemical bond with the tooth after using a gel to great adhesion with the enamel and since it comes in many different shades, your dentist can choose the best color that matches your tooth to create the best cosmetic result.

Bonding is obviously a great improvement to the unsightly silver fillings which are known to contain mercury and with good hygiene can last many years.
