A smile is one of the first things people notice in you. It reflects your personality and oozes confidence. Dental bonding is one of the most popular and frequently performed methods to enrich the aesthetics of your smile. Dental bonding offers a permanent solution to tooth decay, minor-chip, discolouration, alignment problem, or spacing problem in your teeth without the use of a highly invasive procedure. It is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which a tooth-coloured composite material is applied to a tooth, sculpted into shape, hardened, and polished for making aesthetic improvements to a tooth and to give you the confidence to flash those pearly whites.
Tooth bonding is a reliable, safer, and cost-effective solution than other cosmetic dental procedures. Previously, silver-mercury amalgam fillings have been used for restoring broken, chipped, or damaged teeth for over 140 years. However, using mercury for this treatment has been an ongoing concern because of its toxic effects. Although, there is no clear evidence of a connection between the toxicity of mercury in fillings and general health. Apart from this, the black appearance of the material, which is a stark contrast to the teeth has also been a concern of patients over the years. Owing to these negative reviews of mercury fillings, dentists have now brought about considerable changes in the process to make it aesthetically appealing along with providing the same strength. Dental practitioners now apply tooth-coloured resin material and then cures it with visible light (blue light). Applications of tooth composite treatments cover operative and preventive dentistry. They are also included in cosmetic dentistry, prosthodontics, and orthodontics.
The process of placing composite resin fillings requires accuracy. It must be done by experienced hands to ensure the longevity and appearance of a restoration. With an extensive experience of over two decades, our expert dentists rigorously follow the protocols to remove amalgam fillings and ensure that you receive the safest and most accurate treatment. We follow the protocol laid out by the International Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Toxicology (IAOMT). The order of tasks performed according to this protocol is as follows.
