Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a dental procedure in which the dentist applies a tooth-colored resin and hardens it with a special light. This ultimately bonds the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance and strength of teeth. Many times, dental bonding is performed for restorative, aesthetic or orthodontic reasons. Dental sealants are a dental bonding that is used to help prevent cavities on teeth with increased chance of decay due to small fissures or cracks in the tooth surface.

One of the most common procedures performed by a dentist is a composite restoration. The treatment is also referred to as bonding or tooth-colored fillings. Various composite materials are used to correct minor dental discrepancies, shallow carious lesions or less significant fractures. The color of the composite resin perfectly matches the color of the existing dentition.

Dental sealants are applied on primary teeth to prevent the formation of decay. This type of a bonding procedure is especially effective in children and young adults.
