Bonding is a simple process that improves the shape of your tooth in just a single dental appointment. Your dentist uses a composite resin material that's matched to the same colour as your teeth's natural look. Once the material is ready, your dentist places the putty-like substance on your tooth and molds it into place. The last steps include using a special light to harden the material for shaping and buffing. The final result is a pleasing looking tooth that matches the colour and looks of your natural teeth.
