Cosmetic Bonding

The procedure of cosmetic dental bonding makes use of a composite resin to improve a tooth for functional and cosmetic enhancements. The treatment can be used to effectively restore broken or chipped teeth, teeth with gaps and to recolor or reshape your smile.

Prior to the bonding procedure, the tooth/teeth to be bonded are prepared by applying a mild etching solution. This creates small crevices in the enamel, which provide a rough surface, allowing the bonding material stick to the tooth better. The etching solution is rinsed off after a while, and the tooth is then dried before placing the bonding material over the tooth in layers. Each layer is hardened and set using a special curing light. Once the desired thickness has been achieved, the last coat is applied and sculpted to give a natural shape to the tooth. The tooth is then polished to give it a glossy, fine appearance. It is common to experience slight sensitivity or soreness as a natural response towards the dental work that has been performed on your teeth. It should go away after a while.

Bonding resin is available in many shades and is carefully made to match the natural color of the tooth it is being applied to. The whole procedure takes about one or two hours, depending upon how many teeth the treatment is being done for.

Bonding can significantly alter the appearance of a tooth. However, since the resin material used is not as strong as the natural tooth enamel, it is prone to breakage, chipping and staining. If cared for properly, your cosmetic bonding can last for anywhere between three to five years before needing repair or reapplication.

Bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures. To know more about how this treatment can transform your smile, please call our office at (281)394-9988.
