What Is Dental Bonding?
Composite resin materials are often involved in dental bonding treatments. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that is used in many different ways to improve the appearance of the smile, more often used in disguising imperfections.
Below are just a few of the ways in which Dr. Chee uses this material:
- Restoring decayed teeth as a dental filling
- Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Disguising discoloration and staining
- Hiding a gap between the front teeth
- Acting as a veneer front to cover problem areas
If you are interested in a more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, bonding with composite resin might be a good option. Talk to your dentist to explore available services.
What Is the Process of Receiving Composite Resin Bonding Treatments?
The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chee. During this visit, he will thoroughly examine your mouth and teeth to ensure that dental bonding is the best treatment option for you.

Once applied and shaped, the material will be hardened using a special light.
