Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that covers up minor cosmetic problems in the teeth to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile.
Dental bonding is the application of composite resin which is molded to and bonded to the teeth to repair minor tooth damage and to cover up issues like discoloration with a tooth-colored resin that hides imperfections that are negatively affecting your smile.
The procedure is minimally invasive, painless, and only takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. We can transform your smile in a single appointment while keeping your natural tooth enamel intact. Dental bonding is commonly combined with tooth contouring to achieve the best results when patients are filing down jagged edges or changing the shape of their teeth.
This involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel before building up the tooth with composite resin. Contact us at Acacia Dental Care, LLC today to schedule a consultation.
Dental bonding can last for 10 years before needing to be touched up.
Dr. Brookes will perform an oral exam to assess the condition of your teeth and determine if you’re a good candidate for dental bonding.
To help the bonding agent stick, your tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid will be applied.
Composite resin is applied and manipulated to mold the resin to the desired shape.
By exposing the resin to UV light, the resin is cured and fully hardens.
After the resin is hardened, we can perform additional trimming to even the edges and make sure everything is uniform. Then, the tooth will be polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth.
