Dental bonding at Green Tree Dental is a simple and straightforward cosmetic dental treatment that is also known as tooth bonding. This treatment involves the application of a composite resin to a tooth in order to improve the appearance of the teeth and to cover up unsightly imperfections. This composite material is the same as the material that’s used for dental fillings, and as such, dental bonding can sometimes also be referred to as a filling procedure. The process and results of getting dental bonding is similar to that of getting veneers, but dental bonding is much faster and offers more durable results over the long term!
