A bonding service is a common dental procedure that can improve your teeth’ functionality and cosmetic appearance. This complex procedure involves a multi-step process, including adhering composite resin material to the surface of the tooth. First, we match the composite resin to the color of your tooth. Then we adhere the composite to the surface of the tooth; this procedure is commonly performed to repair the damage done to the tooth by decay or wear. The purpose of this procedure is to alter the alignment of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes.
To achieve perfect results, when we perform this procedure, the surface is first roughened; this helps your tooth to adhere to the bonding agent and to hold it in place. Next, a gel is applied to micro-etch the tooth surface, and a primer/bond agent is used so the material adheres to the surface. Then the material is placed on the tooth and hardened with a UV curing light. Lastly, the composite resin material is shaped and polished to get a lustrous finish as a last step. Bonding can help restore the beauty of your smile. Contact us today if you’re interested in learning more about bonding services and how they could help you.
