Gap between your teeth? Bad stains? Chipped tooth? No worries. Bonding can help fix that.
Bonding often provides a simple solution to problems that once would have required the use of extensive techniques such as crowning. It corrects defects through the use of tooth-colored materials known as composite resins.
But how exactly does it work?
- A weak acidic solution is applied to the enamel of the tooth being treated. This solution creates a roughened surface, helping the bonding material to adhere.
- A liquid bonding material is then applied to the tooth's roughened surface.
- The dentist applies a material called a composite resin to the tooth that is shaped to rebuild or replace the missing part of the tooth.
- After being shaped, the resin is hardened and the surface is polished and finished.
