Bonding is a dental procedure in which the dentist applies a tooth-colored dental adhesive or cement to the natural surface of the tooth. Bonding is used to restore chipped teeth, fill holes or spaces between teeth, and cover up discolorations. In general, bonding techniques are used to improve the overall appearance of a tooth.
After application of the resin (a durable plastic material), the resin is cured with a visible, blue light. This creates a strong bond between the resin and the natural tooth’s enamel. Resin material comes in various colors, shades, and textures. The dentist chooses the resin which best suits the situation. The resin materials dentists use today are highly polishable and very durable. Some even contain fluoride which aids in preventing the formation of new cavities.
