Dental Bonding in Bloomfield, PA

Composite resins come in many colors and shade. They provide you with life-like results and the procedure isn't that long. Getting a dental bonding doesn't need any laboratory work so your dentist can finish the procedure in one visit, approximately 30 minutes to an hour.

Here is what the process entails:

  1. Cleaning the surface of the tooth to ensure they're plaque-free
  2. Then they'll etch your teeth with an acidic gel to open pores on the surface of your teeth
  3. Your dentist will rinse the etching material with composite resin matching the color of your teeth
  4. A special curing light hardens the bonding material
  5. Another layer is painted onto your tooth
  6. The tooth is shaped using a drill
