Bonding

DENTIST IN ARLINGTON, VA

Bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. It looks like the original tooth and functions like it as well. It can be used:

  • To correct cracks, chips or gaps in teeth
  • To cover up stains or discolored teeth
  • As a filling after a cavity has been removed

First, the doctor will choose a shade of composite resin that will match and enhance your smile. Then the composite resin will be applied and sculpted over your tooth. After the resin has been applied, a curing light is used to harden the resin. It will then be polished. Results are achieved immediately and can subtly or drastically change the appearance of your smile.
Bonding is a safe, affordable and aesthetically pleasing solution for many dental problems.
