Dental fillings are a common restorative procedure used to treat cavities or tooth decay. The process involves removing the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth and filling the space with a material to restore the tooth's structure and function.
The most common filling materials are amalgam (a mixture of metals including silver, tin, copper, and mercury) and composite resin (a tooth-colored material made of plastic and glass particles). Amalgam fillings are strong and durable but can be more noticeable than composite fillings. Composite fillings can be matched to the color of the natural teeth, making them a more aesthetically pleasing option.
Bonding: Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of teeth by repairing or covering up imperfections. The process involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of the teeth and then shaping and polishing it to match the surrounding teeth.
Bonding is commonly used to address issues such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and discoloration. It can also be used to change the shape or length of teeth for a more symmetrical or aesthetically pleasing appearance.
