Dental bonding is an incredibly flexible procedure that can be used to fix gaps between teeth, repair decayed teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, repair chipped teeth, change their shape, and much more. It can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

You can expect the following treatment steps:

-Step 1: Little advanced preparation is needed for the bonding treatment. All your dentist needs to do is select a bonding material that matches closely with your smile. Then, they will prepare the surface of the tooth by roughening it. Once it’s rough, they will apply a conditioning liquid to it.

-Step 2: Next, your dentist will place the tooth-colored material onto the tooth and will mold and smooth it into the desired shape.

-Step 3: Finally, your dentist will harden the material with an ultraviolet light. Once it’s hardened, they will trim and shape it to make it look completely natural.
