Bonding is a cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatment in which we work to improve the appearance and functionality of the teeth. We provide this procedure to the patient who wants to correct overlapping teeth, discoloration, etc. It also impacts the patient’s overall health.
Procedure Involved in Dental Bonding
The dental bonding procedure we provide is very straightforward. During the procedure, we engrave the surface of your teeth to allow a mold of composite resin to be applied to the teeth, thereby covering flaws like chipped, cracked, or gapped teeth. We will shape, cure, trim, and polish the material to blend it well with your natural teeth.
Then, using laser light, we will cure and harden the material and effectively repair the tooth damage. With the help of bonding, you can prevent your teeth from further damage and the surrounding teeth from wear and tear.
If you have chipped teeth that are noticeably shorter than others, have gaps, thin enamel, or jagged edges are all applicable for dental bonding. However, it is not whitened. So, you have to get your teeth professionally whitened before acquiring the procedure.
On the other hand, if you have severe tooth decay or damage, you are not a good candidate for dental bonding. Then, we would recommend other procedures like crowns, implants, or porcelain veneers.
