Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.
How does dental bonding work?
The tooth is prepared for dental bonding by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. We use the latest technology in dental composite resins. These materials come in a wide variety of colors and levels of translucency so we can very closely match the appearance of healthy, natural enamel. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.
Considerations for Dental Bonding
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. The newest composite resin materials can provide years of beauty and function, and can be placed quickly and affordably.
