Dental bonding refers to the process of applying a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth’s surface. The resin is molded into the desired shape and then hardened with a curing light. The dentist uses this resin to reshape the tooth and correct any cosmetic issues.
Dental bonding is comfortable, safe, and convenient. It’s also an affordable solution for patients who want to improve the aesthetics of their smiles. Dental bonding can be used to correct cracks, chips, and discoloration, as well as improve the overall appearance of the teeth.
The bonding material is made from a durable composite resin that is tinted to match the natural tooth color. It is applied to the tooth and then shaped and polished to the desired contour. Dental bonding can typically be completed in a single visit to the dentist in Albuquerque NM.

Is it painful?
Dental bonding is a non-invasive treatment that involves the application of a composite resin material to the affected tooth. This material is easily moldable, so the dentist is able to shape it into place quickly. Dental bonding is a painless treatment. The dentist numbs the area beforehand so the patient does not feel any discomfort. The dentist may also apply an anesthetic gel to the tooth to ensure the patient does not feel any sensitivity.
What happens after the procedure?
The dentist will provide you with post-procedure care instructions. Make sure you follow them carefully. For the first few days after the procedure, it is best to eat soft foods. Avoid hot, hard, or crunchy foods to prevent damaging your teeth. You should also be careful when brushing your teeth. Brush your teeth gently with a soft toothbrush. Regular dental checkups are also important if you want to maintain your new and improved smile.
