Bonding involves using a tooth-colored composite resin material to repair a decayed tooth, to alter the tooth’s alignment, to close unwanted gaps between the teeth, or to improve the appearance of the tooth. The procedure is simple and can be performed in just one appointment at Red Oaks Dental. After preparing the tooth’s surface to accept and hold the bonding, our dentists will apply a gel to micro-etch the surface of the tooth. Then, we will apply a primer or bonding agent so that the composite resin material will adhere. Finally, the composite resin material is placed on the tooth and set with an intense light. Our dentists will then shape and polish the material to match the contour and beauty of your natural tooth.
