What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding involves adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth, to the front of the tooth.
When is Dental Bonding needed?
1. Repair damage done to the tooth by decay
2. Alter the alignment of the tooth
3. Close gaps between the teeth
4. cosmetic purposes.
How is Dental Bonding done?
First the surface of the tooth is roughened in order to accept the bonding and hold it. A gel is applied to micro etch the tooth surface, and a primer/bond agent is applied so the material adheres to the surface. Then the material itself is placed on the tooth and hardened with intense light. The composite resin material is shaped and polished to get a lustrous finish.
