Bonding is an increasingly popular procedure that will restore the natural beauty of your smile. Bonding is used to fill cracks in teeth, cover up gaps and fill cavities. Bonding can also be an effective procedure for restoring the color of teeth that are stained or discolored.
The first step in the bonding process is for the dentist to place a composite resin on the tooth that is in need of restoration. The resin is held in place by an adhesive gel which is coating the tooth. The doctor sculpts the resin until the natural look of the tooth is restored. The resin is then hardened with an ultraviolet light. The final step is for the dentist to polish the newly-shaped tooth.
Bonding has proven to be stronger and more durable compared to traditional fillings. Bonding technology has improved tremendously in recent years and the treatment will usually last for ten years or more. Bonding is also a treatment that is affordable and can address numerous dental issues.
