Dental bondings are an advanced, yet conservative way to fix a broken teeth. As our cosmetic dentist explains, bondings are used for a variety of reasons, one of which is repairing chipped teeth. Bondings are also used to repair a cavity. While bondings can be used for front and back teeth, they have become associated with the front teeth. Bondings on the back teeth are often called white fillings.
Bonding Saves More of the Tooth
When it comes to placing a crown or a veneer, so much room and space is needed and oftentimes tooth structure (healthy or not) needs to be removed. With dental bondings, this is not the case so more of the natural tooth structure can be saved.
