Composite Bonding Teeth

RESTORATIONS AND Composite Bonding Teeth

The enamel on your teeth is one of the most robust tissues in your body. Yet this is still vulnerable to chipping and even breaking. Falling, being punched in the face, using your teeth to tear open packages, or even biting on hard food can all cause a broken tooth.

Do you think you have tooth decay and need a restoration?

Look no further. At Virginia Dental Care, we strive to make your dental treatment as quick and painless as possible. We all know that cavities hurt and, if not treated properly, can spread to other body parts. Virginia Dental Care uses the most up-to-date technology to find, treat, and prevent dental caries.We also show our patients how to take care of their teeth so that tooth decay doesn’t happen.


Dental Whitening Bonding Teeth is a treatment similar to restorations when dental caries are restored. But it has less to do with how the teeth work and more to do with how they look.Typically, the tooth is prepared and smoothed before a composite resin material is applied to reshape the tooth. It can change the shape, color, size, or another aesthetic aspect that a tooth requires. This way of fixing teeth is often less expensive than making teeth look better, like porcelain veneers.

Teeth bonding for gaps and porcelain veneers are a more cost-effective alternative with more immediate results If that’s what you want, orthodontics is a quick way to fix your teeth.


We are a mercury-free dental practice, so our work and replacement of restorations are highly aesthetic and long-lasting. Call Virginia Dental Clinic today to schedule your dental bonding consultation.

Process of Bonding Treatment

At Virginia Dental Care, our dentist will take dental X-rays and examine your teeth and gums to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure. In general, if you have extensive tooth decay, gum disease, or other serious oral health issues, you should start addressing those conditions first.

1. Preparation

We use a shade guide to choose a material made of composite resin, roughen your teeth, and put the conditioning liquid on them.

2. Apply Resin Material

To get the required shape, resin material—which has a viscosity similar to putty—is applied, molded, and smoothed.

3.Cure the Material

The composite resin is then "bonded" to the surface of your tooth by being hardened using a specialized curing light.

4. Polish your Teeth

Before polishing your teeth to a natural-looking shine, your dentist will make any last corrections that are required.


Identifying a cracked tooth or molar
The presence of a fractured or chipped tooth is typically extremely evident. Your tooth is chipped or missing a piece, the chipped region is jagged or sharp, and you probably feel discomfort. By rubbing your tongue or a finger over the suspected chipped location, you can feel a chipped tooth. A chipped tooth may be more sensitive to heat or cold in the surrounding area. Call your dentist right away if you think you may have fractured a tooth so they can fix it.


Technological advances in the dental industry have evolved, and we no longer recommend amalgam fillings (“silver fillings”) as the treatment for dental caries. The problem with amalgam fillings is that they have some mercury in them, which is bad for your health. They can also break down over time, making it easier for cavities to form again.Composite resin-based restorations (“white shims”) and porcelain are better alternatives. These types of materials act in a similar way to the tooth (both aesthetically and structurally), which can help to strengthen it.
