This is a technique long used in cosmetic dentistry.
It involves the use of a composite resin that bonds to the teeth, helping to repair chipped or broken teeth or filling in gaps, enhancing your smile.
The process involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin filling, which is then sculpted into the proper shape. A high-intensity light is then used to harden the material. Finally, the surface is polished.
This material used for bonding procedures can be placed on the back or front teeth depending on where you need it.
If you have chipped, cracked, discolored or uneven teeth, bonding may be an appropriate solution for you.
Bonding is also used as an alternative in repairing decayed teeth, replacing amalgam fillings, and for gum recession.
