Direct cosmetic tooth bonding is a procedure that is used to mask imperfections on a tooth. It involves the application of a composite resin that matches the natural tooth color. Bonding is an excellent method for covering small imperfections on the surface of a tooth and enhancing the beauty of your smile in a minimal, non-invasive way.
Bonding is done to correct the following issues regarding teeth:
Administration of a local anesthetic during the bonding procedure is done only if the tooth being repaired is affected by cavities. To begin with, we will closely examine the area and decide upon the exact shade of the bonding resin so that it matches with the rest of your teeth. The tooth surface is roughened up a bit and coated with a conditioning solution to prepare the tooth for the application of the bonding resin. The resin is then carefully molded onto the tooth and cured with a special curing light. Once the material has hardened, it is trimmed and shaped to make it look natural.
