Dental bonding is a successful dental treatment that can give you the strong, healthy, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. The process involved in the treatment is easy and painless, and it includes the following three steps:
Step 1 – Preparation
Little preparation is needed for dental bonding. All your dentist needs to do is choose a shade of bonding material that matches perfectly with the color of your natural teeth.
Step 2 – The bonding process
Once the perfect bonding material is chosen, your dentist will roughen the surface of your tooth and will apply a conditioning liquid to it. Then, he will place the tooth-colored resin over the tooth and will mold and smooth it to the desired shape. Next, he will use a curing light to harden the material. Once it’s hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it to match the rest of the tooth’s surface.
Step 3 – Time to completion
Dental bonding should only take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete per tooth.
