The dental bonding procedure utilizes a composite resin and is used for both cosmetic and functional purposes. Composite resin can be used to restore a chipped or broken tooth, fill in gaps or spaces, or reshape or recolor a tooth.
A thin coating of plastic material is placed on the tooth first and then a bonding material (composite resin) is placed and sculpted to provide a pleasing result. A high intensity light is used to harden the plastic and then the surface is finely polished.
The composite resin comes in many shades so that we can match it to your natural teeth. The bonding procedure typically takes 1-2 hours depending on the particular case.
