Dental bonding is one of many cosmetic procedures performed in our practice. Dental bonding is the application of a composite resin material onto a tooth to change the way it looks. Sometimes it is used to disguise a gap between teeth, cover a tooth’s front surface, or repair a tooth that has been chipped or cracked.
Composite resin bonding is completely safe to use. It is a material that can be hardened with a specialized light and then polished to look like natural tooth enamel. This allows it to be incredibly versatile and used for a wide range of purposes. For some patients, it is a faster and more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers.
The procedure is done right in the dental chair. Patients may have some enamel from their tooth removed to allow room for the material to be placed without adding extra bulk. Then this clay-like substance is applied. Once molded, a specialized light is used to harden it. The dental bonding is filed down and polished, which makes it blend into the structure of the tooth and appear as tooth enamel. It will have the same appearance and shine as a natural tooth, ensuring aesthetic improvement.
