A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. Dental bonding or tooth colored filling is used for restoration of chipped, broken or decayed teeth, to reshape or whiten your smile, or to fill in gaps between teeth.
First, a soft composite resin filling is first scooped onto the teeth. The dentist will sculpt and shape the composite filling. Next, a high intensity light is applied to the resin, which hardens the material. Finally, the dentist polishes the surface to obtain natural looking appearance that blends with the tooth.
