Application
GIC material is carefully placed onto the prepared tooth, ensuring proper coverage and shaping for a natural look.

03

Bonding
The GIC material chemically bonds to the tooth, providing stability and minimizing the risk of leakage.

Finishing
After the GIC sets, the dentist shapes and polishes it to match the natural tooth contours, achieving a seamless appearance.
