Dental Bonding Tooth Bonding
is a technique for repairing and reshaping teeth. The tooth surface must be prepared to accept the bonding before the bonding application. First the dentist makes the tooth surface rough by cleaning and then applying a gel that micro-etches the surface. A primer agent is then applied so the bonding material will adhere properly. The bonding material is a resin that is brushed onto the tooth that the dentist molds into the desired shape. The resin is then hardened with intense light. Tooth Restoration is used to:
• Repair tooth decay damage.
• Fill gaps between teeth.
• Improve tooth alignment .
• Cosmetic reasons (improve tooth appearance).
