What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a temporary treatment for restoring cracked teeth, decayed teeth and gaps between the teeth. It comes under cosmetic dentistry. Dental bonding is the least expensive treatment out of all the tooth decay treatment procedures.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental Bonding is a type of composite resin prepared to fill in and restore a decayed tooth or change the color of a tooth or reshape a tooth or make few cosmetic improvements. A thin coated plastic material is applied on the front surface of the tooth, then the cosmetic dentist applies the bonding material already prepared. He will shape, sculpt and color the bonding as per the requirements. A high intensity light is used to harden the plastic, later the surface will be polished to get a perfect shape.
