Dental bonding is the application of a composite resin to a chipped or broken tooth to help restore its natural appearance.
Dental bonding involves applying a gel to the service of your tooth as well as a primer or binding agent. This makes the surface of the tooth adhesive for the bonding resin. After the tooth is prepared, we then place it on the tooth and harden it with a bright light.
After the placement, the composite resin is crafted and polished so that your tooth looks just like the others. Bonding is used to correct damages done by decay, chipped, fractures, or discolored teeth. It is a form of cosmetic dentistry that helps restore your teeth and smile back to normal.
Dental bonding is an incredibly easy and cost-effective way to fix the look of your teeth. The composite resin used to make dental bonds can be shaped, formed and polished to help match your existing teeth. Bonds can also be used to fix awkward spaces between your teeth, and to overall improve your smile. In some cases, dental bonds are used as a form of protection for part of the tooth. If your tooth is broken and a filling will not work or if the root of your tooth is exposed due to gum disease and recession, a dental bond may be used to protect your tooth and to stop any further damage from occurring.
