Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure used to improve an individual's smile esthetically. It is also called cosmetic bonding and is an effective way to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, misaligned or discolored.
You can complete the whole dental bonding procedure while sitting on a dental chair.
When you visit Be More Dental for a dental bonding procedure, you will discuss with Dr. Amanda why you are considering dental bonding and what you hope to achieve. She will also examine your teeth and mouth to assess whether dental bonding is the best treatment option for you. The dentist may suggest alternative treatments if dental bonding is not suitable for you.
Once we have decided you are a good candidate for dental bonding, we will prepare your teeth for the procedure. This usually involves lightly sanding the tooth surface to roughen it up, allowing the bonding material to adhere better.
Dr. Amanda will apply the composite resin in thin layers and then shape it using specialized tools before curing it with a special LED light that hardens it in place. Once complete, she will make any additional adjustments to ensure the bonding material fits perfectly.
Dental bonding is a durable option for repairing cracked or chipped teeth. The material used in dental bonding is made to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. With proper care, your bonded teeth can last up to 10 years.
