This simple process to preserve the natural tooth is a very simple, cosmetic treatment.

It’s plain to see why dentists and patients everywhere like the procedure of a dental bonding due to its inexpensive methods and easy process. Scheduling a consultation with your dentist is the first step to dental bonding. There, you will determine which treatment is best for your smile such as dental bonding.

Your dentist will use a swatch to decide which color best matches your teeth to select a composite resin placement. They will prepare the tooth by roughening the top of the tooth, lightly coat it with conditioning liquid, and then place the bonding material (tooth-colored resin) will be contoured to the shape of your tooth. A special ultraviolet light then cures it for about a minute.

After it has solidified, your dentist will cut away excess material and polish the tooth down. A checkup appointment may be needed to look at the bonding and ensure its comfortability.
