Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth. A composite resin is used. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an ultraviolet light is used to set the resin which is then polished to give you a fresh new smile. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 5 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
