The Procedure

Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to the affected area, meticulously sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth. The process starts with a detailed assessment of your dental needs, followed by the preparation of the tooth surface, where it is lightly etched and coated with a bonding liquid to ensure the material adheres properly. The resin is then applied, shaped, and smoothed to achieve the desired look. A special curing light is used to harden the resin, after which it is finely polished to blend seamlessly with the surrounding tooth structure.
