Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin is used to restore or improve a person's smile.  The composite material is hardened with a special light, which bonds the material to the tooth.  Dental bonding can be used to fill cavities, repair chipped or crached teeth, restore the color of discolored teeth, and improve the overall appearance or your smile.

Anesthesia is often not necessary, unless the dentist must first drill out tooth decay. The dentist will use a shade guide to select a color that matches the color of your tooth.

First, the dentist must roughen the surface of the tooth to help the bonding adhere to the tooth.  The bonding material is then applied and smoothed to the desired shape.  A special light is then used to harden the material.  The dentist will then polish the tooth.

Unlike veneers and crowns, dental bonding is among the easiest, most conservatice, and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures.
