Composite bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored material to a tooth, shape it, harden it, and polish it. Bonding can be used to close gaps, repair small defects, or reshape misshapen teeth. It is less expensive than crowns, veneers, or other treatments.
Here's How it WorksWe clean the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once applied, it is shaped it so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is cured to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the bonding material is polished and buffed so it is smooth and beautiful. Bonding can be "touched up" in the future if needed to repair wear or a defect.
