What Is Composite Resin Bonding?
Composite resin bonding is a special material that is clay-like in nature and is used on the teeth to cover imperfections, repair a tooth that is chipped or broken or to apply to an area where cavities have taken over. This material is tooth-colored and matches the natural tooth enamel, ensuring a seamless smile even when cavities have been treated. The material is applied, shaped, hardened, filed, and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel.
How Can Composite Resin Bonding Help?
Bonding is used in many situations, and can disguise gaps between the teeth, reshape a tooth that has been chipped, or treat a cavity. Because this material is so versatile, it has become popular for use by many cosmetic dentistry practices.

Patients with composite resin restorations can smile, laugh, and speak with others without feeling self-conscious about how they look.
Who Is a Candidate for Composite Resin Bonding?
