Teeth Bonding

teeth-bonding

If you have decayed, chipped, fractured, or a discolored tooth, then you should undergo a tooth bonding procedure to cosmetically correct the imperfection. Tooth bonding involves a tooth-colored plastic (resin) being applied and hardened by special lights to replace teeth with the below conditions:

Reasons To Undergo A Tooth Bonding Procedure

  • To repair decayed teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • To increase the length and width of the teeth
  • Cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To fix fractured teeth

Tooth Bonding Preparation

Normally our team requires no preparation for the bonding. If the bonding is required for a decaying teeth, then we administer an anesthetic.

Tooth Bonding Process

A shade guide is used to find a composite resin to match the color of your tooth.

We will abrade or etch the surface of the tooth slightly to roughen it.

A conditioning liquid is applied on the tooth to coat it and to help with the adherence of the bonding material.

We will apply the putty-like tooth-colored resin.

The resin is molded, properly shaped and hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser.

The composite resin is further shaped, trimmed and polished until it complements the rest of the tooth.

Our Completion Time

Usually, the procedure takes between 30 minutes to an hour per tooth to complete, and for more than one tooth, we urge you to schedule additional tooth bonding visits with our dentists.

Why Have a Dental Bonding?

The process is one of the easiest and least expensive, and is a great alternative to other cosmetic dental procedures like porcelain veneers and crowns. Additionally, the process requires less enamel being removed.
