This is type of cosmetic and restorative procedure takes an artist skill since you dentist has to repair and rejuvenate your teeth, while also having to improve the function and appearance of your smile. The material your dentist uses for dental bonding is composed of composite resin that hardens and fuses to your tooth when a specialized light is shined on it.

Dental Bonding Procedure:

  • First your dentist will start by applying an etching solution to your tooth/teeth that will be receiving the bonding material. The solution gently roughens the surface of your tooth to create a strong between the tooth and composite resin.
  • Then a thin layer of the bonding resin is placed on the surface of your tooth and is seal with a special kind of light. Many layers can be added and hardened. Each layer takes a couple minutes to harden.
  • After your dentist will start to sculpt the material to the desired shape and then is colored to match the shape of your very own natural teeth.
  • Finally to finish, the bonding material is polished until it’s entirely smooth.
