What Is Dental Bonding?

Published on April 14, 2017 by

Having a good smile can help you in many situations. In the professional world, it can be seen as a sign of confidence and trustworthiness. In our personal lives, it can be seen as friendly and attractive. If, however, your smile has been degraded by an accident that has chipped or misshapen your teeth, the only way to fix it is with dental bonding.

Dental bonding is a procedure that involves a composite resin material being applied to a tooth. Your dentist will begin the procedure by applying an acidic solution to the surface and follow it up with a liquid bonding agent. He will then apply the resin and mold it until it reaches the desired shape. Once that is completed, an ultraviolet laser is used to harden the resin.

Dental bonding can be used to refine and shape your smile to be more aesthetically pleasing. Contact the Dental Professionals of San Antonio for the best dental care and assistance improving your smile. With our help, your smile will look better than ever.
