White Filling / Bonded Restorations

Composite tooth bonding is a technique that can change your smile. Composite bonding is a simple solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color or reshaping your teeth as an immediate orthodontic treatment.

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed. However, this will subside after your tooth acclimates to the new filling. But in some cases, the sensitivity will be treated by a slight bite adjustment in a separate appointment while the tooth is not numb. You will be given care instructions after your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may have to be replaced someday. However, they are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
