Dental bonding is a simple procedure to repair a damaged tooth. It may not even require anesthesia unless filling a cavity and can usually be completed in one visit.
Bonding repairs cracked, chipped or discolored teeth and can even reduce gaps between teeth. The dentist chooses the resin color with a shade guide to try and match the color of your natural teeth.
After preparing the surface of the tooth, the dentist applies the bonding agent followed by the composite resin. After molding and shaping the tooth, ultraviolet light is used to solidify the material.
Care for your bonded tooth includes avoiding coffee and tea for a few days after the procedure to prevent staining the bonded tooth. Brush and floss twice a day as usual and avoid biting your nails and eating hard candy.>
