To begin, we use a mild etching solution to condition the tooth surface. This helps the bonding agent adhere to your tooth.
We then apply the bonding material and harden it with a special curing light.
We add another layer of resin, and again, harden it with the curing light. We may do this several times until we reach the proper thickness.
Once all layers have been placed, we sculpt them to the desired shape.

Bonding can be a good way to repair minor problems and give you a beautiful smile.
