Composite Dental Bonding
Bonding is a treatment where we apply a tooth-colored composite product to a tooth, shape it, allow it to solidify, and polish it. It can be utilized in specific scenarios where a tooth has actually been damaged or become stained. These are usually small repairs, ones that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive methods rather than through a more expensive dental procedure.
Here Is How It Works:
Bonding includes adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth, to the front of the tooth. This is done to repair damage done to the tooth by decay, to change the alignment of the tooth, close spaces in between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface area of the tooth is roughed up in order to accept the bonding and hold it. A gel is applied to micro etch the tooth surface area, and a primer/bond agent is used so the material adheres to the surface area. Then the material itself is put on the tooth and hardened with intense light. The composite resin material is shaped and polished to obtain a shiny finish as a last step.
