Bonding is a quick and cost-effective way to correct common cosmetic dental problems. It is the process by which a strong dental adhesive is used to bond a composite resin filling to a tooth’s surface. In only one appointment, the teeth are sculpted to an ideal anatomical shape, hardened with a high intensity halogen curing light, and polished to an enamel-like finish.
Bonding can be used to:
- Restore small cavities
- Close small gaps
- Cover dark stains
- Replace small, defective silver fillings
- Correct small chips or cracks
- Correct irregular shaped teeth
The decision to use dental bonding is based on the area of your tooth that needs restoration or enhancement. Both dental bonding and tooth colored fillings are carefully matched to your smile’s attributes, helping ensure a smooth and flawless aesthetic. Our dentists at Oradental would be pleased to discuss dental bonding in more detail with you during your initial consultation.
