The process is relatively simple and doesn’t take much time. Our dentist will first prepare the resin by color-matching the compound to your teeth. He will then carefully scrape the surface of the damaged tooth to roughen it. The dentist will dab some conditioning liquid on this surface to help the bonding material adhere to the natural tooth.
Once the tooth is ready, Dr. Santana will apply the resin in thin layers and shape it based on the natural contours of the underlying tooth. As the bonding material hardens, he will carefully trim and form it to ensure it matches your other teeth well.
Finally, he will then polish the fully cured resin until it matches the shine of your natural teeth, making sure nothing seems out of place.
