The Direct Bonding Process
Bonding is simple enough that it can usually be completed in just one appointment. In addition, most patients don’t even require a local anesthetic or sedation for it.
First, Dr. Amin uses a shade guide to select the perfect color of composite resin to match your tooth. She then lightly etches the enamel, creating a surface to which the resin can more easily attach. The resin is applied to your tooth until the imperfections it once had are a thing of the past. An ultraviolet curing light is shone onto the tooth, hardening the resin into place in mere seconds. After Dr. Amin gives your tooth one last polish, you’re free to enjoy all the benefits of your new and improved smile!
