Bonding is a restoration procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to a tooth and cured with ultraviolet light. In just one office visit, your smile can be improved. Bonding is used more often for small cosmetic touchups rather than major restorations. Bonding can fill cracks, chips, Spots of discoloration that are resistant to bleaching and worn areas of your teeth, giving you a healthy, younger-looking smile. The resin looks like real enamel and is precisely matched to the shade of your teeth.
Bonding is a conservative procedure. The surface for the tooth is roughened a little to give the resin a good grip. The composite is sculpted directly onto your tooth and firmly bonded so it will remain in place for years.
