What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is also known as cosmetic or composite bonding. It is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce the size of gaps between the teeth, and can also be used to repair chipped teeth and re-shape uneven, worn surfaces.
Bonding involves the use of dental composite, a tooth-coloured material which is soft at room temperature. Your dentist moulds and shapes the composite to fill in gaps and improve the shape of individual teeth and then when they are happy with the result, they set it using a curing light. Once the composite is set, it is strong and hard-wearing and it will look exactly natural tooth structure. There are lots of different shades of composite available, so your dentist can match the composite very closely for a seamless finish.
Is bonding painful?
