“Bonding” or “dental bonding” in dentistry refers to attaching some dental materials to your teeth on a permanent basis using a high intensity curing light and dental adhesives. It can be of two types. The first type is the direct composite bonding and the second one is adhesive bonding of a restoration that was designed in dentist’s office or in a laboratory.
What is Direct Composite Bonding?
Dentists have in their offices white or natural looking composites which they use to close the gaps between your teeth, fill cavities, build up any worn-down edges of your teeth or repair chips or cracks. Your dentists may place these materials on or in your teeth wherever needed.
