Tooth bonding can be a quick and economical option to address minor cosmetic concerns or to repair teeth that are chipped, cracked or damaged. This cosmetic procedure can be completed in our Sandy Springs dentist office, often during a single visit without the need for an anesthetic.
How Does Tooth Bonding Work?
Cosmetic tooth bonding is basically the same process as a resin composite dental filling. Dr. Paulen will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cures the material with a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.
