What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a commonly used technique that your dentist may recommend if you have chipped or cracked teeth. It can also be used for patients with discoloration, excessive gaps, and receding gums. Additionally, composite dental bonding offers an aesthetically appealing alternative to traditional amalgam fillings for patients with tooth decay.

The procedure to apply the composite resin is relatively quick, taking only about 30 minutes per tooth. First, your dentist will roughen the surface and clean it thoroughly. This helps the composite resin adhere to the tooth more effectively. Then, the material is applied, shaped, and hardened with a UV light. The dentist may shape and smooth it again after the hardening process so that it closely matches the rest of your smile.
