Bonding Technology (Composite Bonding)


A composite resin filling may be used when only a small amount of tooth structure needs replacement. Composite bonding is one of the most conservative, versatile and affordable ways to aesthetically restore a multitude of cosmetic problems.


To begin a bonding procedure, we treat the tooth with a special enamel conditioner to roughen the enamel surface and allow the bonding material to adhere. A composite resin is the applied and shaped to match the contour of your natural tooth. The surface of the composite is then restored to the tooth’s natural shape and polished to achieve a natural luster and appearance.
