At Christiana Dental Center in Newark, DE, we will work with you to find the best option to fix chipped, fractured or discolored teeth. Composite bonding is one of the simplest and least expensive cosmetic procedures.
What is Composite Bonding?
Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure where composite resin is shaped and molded to your teeth. It can be used to repair chipped teeth, gapped teeth or to cover staining. Unlike porcelain veneers, which takes multiple visits, composite resin bonding can be completed in one appointment.The bonding material can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
The Bonding Process
First, some of your tooth’s surface enamel will be removed, allowing the dentist to best shape the composite resin to your tooth. Then the bonding agent will be applied, and finally, your dentist will add the composite resin, cure it with a special light and finish by polishing your teeth.
