Bonding with the Dentist

                 Bonding is the direct application of tooth colored material to restore or change the
appearance of  teeth.  Layers of bonding material may be added to the fronts and the edges of teeth to change the color or the shape and size.  Often times, this procedure is totally painless and doesn’t require the use of local anesthetic.  Teeth can be recontoured to give the illusion of straight teeth without orthodontics.
         Bonding material is slightly thicker than toothpaste and is applied to the tooth surface in increments.  It comes in a variety of shades so it can be matched to your teeth.   It is then cured(or hardened) by a bright light, finished and polished. Dramatic improvements in your smile can be painlessly accomplished in just one visit.
