Dental Bonding

dental bonding before and after

 

Dental bonding is used to repair various types of tooth damage, such as cracks, gaps, and breaks.  The procedure adheres a tooth-colored resin (durable plastic material) to the natural tooth.  The resin is cured using a visible blue light that "bonds" the material to the tooth.  The result is an improvement in the overall appearance of the teeth.  Dental bonding is a relatively simple cosmetic dental procedure, that preserves the most amount of the tooth's enamel.
