Accidents happen throughout our lives and dental accidents are no different. If you have a broken or chipped tooth, it’s time to make a dental appointment. Chances are, you are the ideal candidate for dental bonding. Not only will dental bonding fix further dental issues from occurring, but it will drastically enhance your smile to a more natural and polished look.
But what does it entail to undergo dental bonding? Well, a little advance preparation is needed for dental bonding. You may be weary of the fix looking obvious to others, but your dentist will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that will closely match the color of your tooth.
Next, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied. These procedures help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape before an ultraviolet light laser is used to harden the material. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface. All in all, a typical dental bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
Not only does dental bonding repair chipped or cracked teeth, but it is also recommended for those individuals who suffer from tooth discoloration. Avoid suffering from stains that never seem to go away no matter how hard you try because dental bonding will allow you to achieve your ideal, bright smile.
