We prepare a tooth for bonding by lightly etching its surface and applying an adhesive solution. The plastic resin applied and sculpted as the bonding agent sets is trimmed, smoothed, polished and sculpted to blend seamlessly with its tooth. It would be nearly impossible for the naked eye to discern the dental work from the tooth’s own enamel.
The single office visit that bonding procedures often require can dramatically revitalize your confidence in your smile. These long-lasting surfaces typically last three to five years before requiring repairs or replacement. Please note, although durable, the composite resin (white filling) has its limitations. It is more likely than natural enamel to stain, chip or break.
