- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that are too small
- Severe dental staining/discoloration
The Cosmetic Bonding Process
In most cases, the cosmetic bonding process is simple and comfortable – many patients don’t even require anesthesia. Once a rubber dam is in place to prevent saliva from interfering with the procedure, Dr. Steve W. Cobb will apply a slightly acidic solution to the surface of your tooth. This roughens the area just enough to create a more successful adhesion between the enamel and the composite resin. Then, the composite resin itself is applied and precisely sculpted to create the most pleasing shape before it’s hardened with a special curing light. Finally, Dr. Steve W. Cobb will buff and polish the treated tooth to ensure the ideal look.
