What Can I Expect During My Tooth Bonding?
The most common need for composite bonding at Lakeside Dental is as a filling material following the removal of a cavity and dental decay. The entire dental bonding process typically takes less than an hour to complete and can be done in just one visit. During your appointment, the composite material will be molded and sculpted over a bonding agent that is placed on the tooth. After the composite has been applied, a specialized light will be used to cure and harden the composite. Once the composite bonding is hardened, you’ll be able to leave your appointment with a beautiful and fresh smile.
