Dental bonding is typically a comfortable procedure that seldom requires anesthesia unless it's specifically being used to address a decayed tooth. In cases where anesthesia is deemed necessary for your comfort, your dentist will ensure you are adequately numbed to alleviate any potential discomfort during the process.
Subsequently, your skilled dentist will meticulously employ a shade guide to select a resin color that closely mimics the natural shade of your teeth. This precise color-matching step is paramount in ensuring that the bonding material seamlessly integrates into your smile, avoiding any noticeable discrepancies in color or tone, thus achieving a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing result.
The tooth's surface is delicately roughened for optimal resin adhesion, followed by the precise application of resin. It's then cured with UV light, providing strength. Polishing ensures a seamless blend with surrounding teeth. The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes per tooth, varying based on the case and number of teeth.
