Tooth bonding


If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned or otherwise imperfect tooth that the needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest tooth bonding which can be done in one appointment. The process includes applying the composite resin, matching shade to blend with your tooth. A curing light is used to harden the composite resin, then the restoration is polished. In just one appointment, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile. However, you need to schedule a consultation with the dentist first to see if bonding work for your tooth condition. A chipped tooth usually is caused by a forced impact or tooth decay underneath which may incur other dental problems such as visible/ invisible fracture lines or dental infection.
