What Is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth colored material that is “bonded” to your teeth to smooth, reshape, or resurface them, providing a great aesthetic result in minimal time and with minimal expense. Bonding can also be used to fill small cavities.
How Does It Work?
During a dental bonding procedure, a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin to your tooth and then uses a special light to harden or “bond” the material to the tooth. The ability to bond restorative materials to enamel has, in fact, revolutionized your dentist’s ability to prevent and prepare cavities, as well as improve the overall appearance of your smile.
