Dental bonding is a restorative treatment used to fix minor chips and cracks in teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin material is used to improve the appearance of one's smile. The composite resin is shaped and polished to match the existing teeth, correcting stains, gaps, chips, or other imperfections. Cosmetic bonding can be completed in just one appointment and can improve the appearance of a smile instantly.
What is the procedure for cosmetic bonding?
It is a painless procedure. The dentist will slightly etch the surface of the tooth. Then, a conditioning gel is applied. This gel will roughen the surface of the tooth and will create a strong bonding surface. Composite resin is placed on the tooth, shaped, and then hardened with a curing light. The dentist will shape and smooth the resin until it matches your surrounding teeth. A special light is used to harden the resin. Finally, the dentist will polish the bonded tooth.
