For posterior teeth the replacement of amalgam (silver fillings) or gold can be accomplished with conservative techniques with tooth color restorative materials. Bonding on posterior or anterior teeth can be accomplished with direct restorations (one appointment) or indirect restorations (two appointments) where the restoration(s) are created in the laboratory. These techniques are extremely sensitive and must follow a very specific protocol for proper execution. They require time and expertise and a great deal of attention to detail and it must be done under proper isolation techniques. We use these techniques routinely because of their conservative nature and exceptional results.
Bonding is an esthetic and conservative technique that replaces the lost tooth structure. Direct bonding is usually done in one appointment and does reflect the knowledge and artistic ability of the dentist by combining science and art. While all dentists offer this technique, it is extremely sensitive and must be carried out meticulously to achieve excellent results.
