Although cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive and straightforward procedure it is imperative that you work with an experienced dentist who can address your particular needs while helping you maintain a natural appearance. Cosmetic bonding requires both skill and artistry. The procedure begins with the dentist matching the resin to your teeth. The resin is then added to one tooth at a time and shaped as necessary to correct the imperfection. Once the dentist is satisfied with the appearance of the resin, it is hardened with the help of a special curing lamp. The procedure is completed by polishing the teeth to a sheen that closely resembles natural tooth color and translucency. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, which means you can resume your normal activities directly after the procedure.
