Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are abraded, chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged.

How is dental bonding accomplished?

The tooth is prepared for dental bonding by applying an etching gel to create a porous surface. A priming and bonding agent is applied and cured, followed by the application of a composite resin. The material is sculpted, trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.

Considerations for Dental Bonding

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the composite resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, over time it may stain or chip requiring polish or repair.
