Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes:
Correcting a tooth gap.
Repairing chipped/cracked teeth.
Tooth bonding is dependent on the artistic ability of the dentist, since the work is done
“freehand,” without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be color matched,
sculpted, and polished to produce a beautiful and natural looking result
The Bonding Procedure
Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office.
First, we select a shade of composite resin that is as close as possible to the shade of your teeth.
A liquid is then applied that helps the bonding material adhere to the teeth.
The composite resin is applied to the teeth, smoothed into the desired shape and hardened with a high intensity light.
After the resin has hardened, a few final touches are made, and the teeth being treated are polished until they resemble the other teeth.
