What Is Direct Bonding?

This material is actually the same thing we use in tooth-colored fillings. Composite resin is a fine mixture of glass and acrylic particles that resembles a putty. It can be color-changed to match with your tooth and blend in with the rest of your smile.

First, your cosmetic dentist in Weatherford will make sure you’re comfortable before starting the treatment. Then, we’ll prepare the area, creating a tiny abrasion on the affected tooth to help the composite resin better attach to it. Next, we’ll apply the resin in layers, sculpting it as we go to build your tooth up to the desired shape and size. The material is then hardened into place with a curing light. Lastly, our dentists will polish the tooth so that it looks natural, right down to the way it reflects light. This can all be finished in about 90 minutes or less!
