Bonding & Composite Fillings
Natural-Looking Tooth Bonding and Composite Fillings
Do you have a chipped tooth or one that requires cavity filling? Bonding and composite fillings by Scott E. Hayhurst Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Boise, ID are a fantastic option that won’t take away from the natural look of your teeth. Both options use resins to create a firm and smooth finish that blends in with original teeth and can be applied to either front or back teeth.

What Is Bonding?
Bonding is a procedure that applies composite resin to the surface of teeth to smooth out or hide imperfections such as chips, cracks, large gaps, or stains. Compared to other alternatives, it is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the appearance of teeth. With the use of a shade guide, our experience with dental bonding will ensure that we find a perfect match to your original teeth’s color for a seamless bond.
What Are Composite Fillings?
While metal fillings have served reliably for years, composite resin fillings are a popular choice for patients who prefer something that blends in naturally with their teeth. This is especially beneficial for filling in a visible spot near the front of the mouth.
Proper Care for Bonding and Composite Fillings
If you receive tooth bonding for a chip or a composite resin filling, it’s essential to practice good oral hygiene to protect your new dental work and ensure it lasts as long as possible. Fillings are typically in an area where teeth undergo a lot of stress from chewing and grinding. Be careful with hard or sticky foods, visit the dentist regularly, and take care of your teeth to help you get the most out of these services.
