Composite Dental Bonding
Bonding is a cost effective treatment used in cases where the tooth has minor cosmetic damage such as chips, to improve the shape of the tooth, or to improve discoloration.
The dentist prepares the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once it has been applied, the dentist will shape it so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is allowed to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed so that the surface is smooth.
Dr. Nadia Navid, DDS will prepare the surface of your tooth so that the bonding material will adhere properly. The composite material, which has been color-matched to your teeth, is then shaped to match the natural appearance of the tooth. Then the material is cured with the assistance of a light. Once hardened, the composite is buffed and polished to ensure the surface is smooth.
