Cosmetic bonding refers to restorations made from composite resin material, and is used similarly to porcelain veneers and onlays. The cosmetic bonding requires no outside lab procedure, and is built directly onto the tooth structure. Results are truly amazing!
Bonding is durable, tissue compatible, kind to the opposing teeth, and stain-resistant. Fischl Dental Associates is able to make absolutely the thinnest restoration possible. Cosmetic bonding allows us to preserve the greatest amount of natural tooth structure, and usually minimal or no numbing is required. Exquisite natural aesthetics are achieved, a result of the light-transmitting qualities found in natural teeth. Bonding is most often used to close spaces between teeth, replace worn or missing enamel, repair chipped or broken teeth, reshape misaligned or crooked teeth, and cover discolored or permanently teeth.
Composite bonding is also used to fill cavities and to replace existing mercury silver fillings. In fact, our office believes that composite bonding is a superior material to mercury silver fillings, and we have been mercury-free for several years.
