Dental bonding is used for many reasons, including restoration of chipped, broken or decayed teeth, to reshape or whiten your smile, or to fill in gaps between the teeth. Bonding can also be used to attach bridges, and orthodontic appliances and fillings onto the teeth.
First, a soft composite resin filling is first scooped onto the teeth. The dentist will sculpt, and shape the composite filling. Next, a high intensity light is applied to the resin, which hardens the material. Finally, the dentist polishes the surface to obtain natural looking appearance that blends with the tooth.
