Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is used to restore cavities, often called white fillings. We can also cover stains and cracks in your teeth with the composite dental resin and even fill in a chipped tooth so it looks as good as new. It takes years of training, an artist’s eye, and careful attention to detail to make the dental bonding completely indistinguishable from a natural tooth!

Composite bonding uses a resin that has been dyed to match your natural tooth color. Dr. Petroff paints the resin onto your tooth in thin layers, shaping and drying them with a high-intensity curing light one-by-one to build the desired shape. The resin is hardened with a high-intensity light until it’s dry. Dr. Petroff then smooths and polishes it until it’s indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.
