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.
