Bonding is another way of saying composite filling. Composite resin is tooth colored filling material. Composites come in many different shades and colors so the dentist can custom match your teeth. Dr. Ray first prepares your tooth by removing any decay or diseased tooth structure. The tooth is prepared with bond and the composite is then layered to match the shape and color of the tooth. Each layer is cured with a blue light to harden the composite filling so that it may function in your mouth. Dr. Ray then uses marking paper to make sure all of the teeth fit together properly. The composite filling is then polished to give it a nice shine!
