What Is Dental Bonding?
Preparation: there isn’t as much preparation for teeth bonding as there is for other dental procedures. Dr. Edmond Ahdoot will determine the resin color that most closely resembles the color of your teeth. He and his staff will then determine whether or not anesthesia will be applied (which usually isn’t the case unless bonding is used to fill a cavity or is placed near a nerve).
Bonding: The bonding process involves roughening of the tooth and applying a conditioning liquid which is used to help the bonding material mesh with the tooth. Your custom resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed into the correct shape after which a laser sets the material to harden. Once hardened, Dr. Ahdoot will trim and shape the tooth, polishing it to match your bite.
