Bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth.
During dental bonding at Dental Group of Amarillo, a white filling is placed on your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit. First, the tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.
