Dental bonding is a excellent procedure to help repair and correct any number of issues, including decay, chipped or cracked teeth, fillings, elongating, changing shape, discoloration, and gapped teeth. Within a single visit taking no longer than a hour, the talented technicians at Cirocco Dental Center can make your teeth appear healthier and more naturally aesthetically pleasing without hassle.
Less expensive than veneers and crowns with just as incredible results, with bonding our dental professionals will use a shade guide to best match the resin (made from specialty plastic material) to your tooth’s natural color. Then the tooth’s surface will be coated in a special adhesive solution which will help the bonding material to adhere to the targeted area as securely as possible. Finally, after the resin has been carefully applied and molded to the tooth’s natural shape, a bright ultraviolet light source helps harden the material so it can be buffed and polished to perfection.
With proper care, bonding can last for many years without any additional treatment; it helps relieve sensitivity and restores 85-95% of the tooth’s original strength.

What are White Fillings?
White resin fillings are emerging as a popular alternative to the traditional silver filling treatment, with many advantages in their corner. They not only appear more natural, but save more of the natural tooth during treatment, are more resistant to decaying, increase strength and decrease sensitivity to cold air, fluids, and foods, as well as eliminate risks for mercury contamination found in silver fillings. Preparation and treatment time is much smaller, and it can be easily combined with other procedures such as inlays, crowns and bridges.
The two main types of white filling are direct and indirect. Direct white fillings are used for fixing gaps, reshaping, and traditional fillings, and are hardened with a curing light after the material is fitted within the cavity area. Indirect white fillings are used for larger cavities, inlays and onlays, and partial crowns, and the material is first cured with the light before being placed in the mouth.
There are several disadvantages to be aware of. Composite fillings are more expensive and have a shorter life span than silver fillings – anywhere between seven and ten years on average – as well as greater risk for chipping or wearing down of the teeth.
White fillings appear more natural and save more of the natural tooth during treatment.
