What is dental or tooth bonding?
Bonding may be described as a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin such as plastic is applied directly onto the damaged tooth for repairing chips, cracks, decays, fractures or any unsightly discolorations. The resin is adhered to the tooth with the help of a high-quality adhesive and hardened with a special high intensity curing light that ‘bonds’ the resin to the tooth.
