What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that uses tooth-colored composite resin to improve the appearance of teeth. The composite resin begins as a putty that our dentists will apply to the tooth. They then shape it for the patient’s desired outcome. Once they finish shaping the putty, they will use a special light to harden it. After it hardens, Dr. Luu will make any final adjustments and polish the teeth.
