The first step in the process is roughening and reshaping the surface of the tooth to prepare it for bonding. A gel is then applied so the resin will adhere to the surface of the tooth. The composite is then placed on the tooth and the bonding agent hardens with the help of a curing light. The last step is shaping and polishing to give a lustrous finish. The entire process only takes up to an hour and doesn’t cause extensive pain or aftercare.
