Dental bonding can serve as an easy alternative for braces or veneers, so that you can reclaim your smile self-esteem.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure, which uses white resin to harmonize your smile. The resin serves as a catalyst for correcting chips, discoloration, or misaligned teeth. Dental bonding is an attractive alternative to traditional silver fillings. This simple treatment is affordable and easy, making it an excellent option for patients with minor smile imperfections.
How does Dental Bonding Work?
Your dentist will select a resin color that blends with your surrounding teeth. Next, your tooth will be roughened up to prepare the surface, and a putty-like resin will be applied to the tooth. This resin is moldable, and your dentist will shape it to achieve a natural look that's coherent with your smile. As soon as the resin is perfectly shaped, an ultraviolet light or laser will be used to harden the material in place. Finally, the tooth will be polished until it matches surrounding teeth, giving you a radiant and complete smile.
