Dental Bonding in Toronto
Dental bonding can be used to improve the appearance of teeth or to restore decayed teeth. A composite resin is applied to the teeth.
The dentist roughens the enamel surface of the teeth with phosphoric acid so that the composite resin will adhere to the teeth. The dentist then applies the resin to the tooth and exposes it to a high intensity light which hardens the resin and seals up the “roughed up” enamel. After bonding the resin to the tooth, the dentist polishes and contours the tooth.
