Bonding and White Fillings
White fillings also known as resins are used to replace the damaged part of the tooth as a result of cavity or to enhance appearance of the teeth. It is also used to cover exposed roots to reduce sensitivity and close gaps between teeth. Because of the advances in dental technology, resins mimic the color of the tooth, expand and contract similar to the tooth unlike silver fillings and can be used to fill the cavities at their early stage. Unlike silver fillings, resins do not contain mercury. It is safe to be used in children.
