Learn How Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Smile

Improve your smile with dental bonding

What exactly is dental bonding?

Setting a dental bondingA dental bonding is when a dentist adds a tooth-colored material to a portion of the tooth to fill in or reshape that particular part of the tooth.

In some instances, bondings are the same things as “fillings” and the dentist can use a bonding to fix a cavity. The dentist can also use a bonding to fix stained or discolored areas of teeth that are not esthetic when a patient smiles.

The bonding material starts off as a putty, which is molded into the prepared area of the tooth. The dentist then uses a special blue light which causes the putty to “set” and become a solid material.
