Do you feel self-conscious about your smile because of unsightly silver fillings? Are you worried that your teeth may start to crack if you get a silver filling?
Dental Bonding can provide an affordable and long-lasting alternative to silver or amalgam fillings. Our tooth bonding is made of biocompatible materials that will flex with your teeth, ensuring that your smile looks great for years to come.
Dental Bonding For Emergency Tooth Repair
You don’t have to wait until you have a major dental issue to get dental bonding. If you have one or more minor cosmetic problems with your teeth, dental bonding can help.
Dental bonding is an affordable and simple process that can fix:
- Decaying teeth
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between your front teeth
Bonding can also be used to lengthen shorter teeth, add width to skinnier teeth, and close large gaps. It’s a way to make your smile look naturally beautiful.

Dental Bonding To Replace Silver Fillings
Silver fillings can often be unsightly and can even cause staining of tissues next to them. They also can pose higher fracture risks for teeth as they require more tooth removal when teeth are prepared for them in order to stay in.
We offer tooth bonding as a much more esthetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Tooth bonding is made from white dental bonding materials and looks just like your natural teeth. Bonding also structurally “bonds” to the tooth, whereas amalgam just sits up against it and can often create more of a wedging effect that can lead to fracture.
Bonding vs Veneers
For many adults, getting dental bonding is a way to improve their smile without the extra time and expense of having porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells that cover the front side of your teeth to fix imperfections. They’re made from natural materials and require at least two visits to the dentist. They’re also expensive and may not be covered by your dental insurance.
Bonding is an ideal option because you can get fast results—most patients need just one visit to the dentist’s office. The procedure is affordable, convenient, and permanent. However, every situation is different and talk to your dentist about which treatment option is right for you to achieve the results you are looking for.
The Pros And Cons of Dental Bonding
Bonding is a way to improve your smile. There are some important things you should consider before deciding if this treatment is for you, though:
Pros: Tooth bonding can be used to repair chipped and stained teeth, and fix gaps between your teeth. Often can be done relatively fast, and cost is less than porcelain options.
Cons: Dental bonding does not last as long as porcelain veneers or crowns. If you are a grinder, clencher, chew on ice/fingernails/pens as a habit, the material may wear away faster. Bonding also is at risk of picking up stains over time from various foods and smoking.
When you visit our dentist’s office, we can help you decide if tooth bonding is the best option for you.
How Much Is Dental Bonding? What Does Dental Bonding Cost?
The cost of dental bonding depends on how many surfaces our dentist has to sculpt for you. The more material our dentist has to use and the more that they have to sculpt, the more expensive the filling.
Our dentists will give you a quote during your complimentary consultation, and we’ll make sure that you’re comfortable with the cost before we begin any procedures.
