Do you have any stained, misaligned, chipped, or broken teeth? Are you look for a solution to restore them? If so, dental bonding may be the perfect solution for you! Dental bonding can be used as an alternative to veneers, and as a restorative procedure for crack, chipped, misaligned or discolored. This is type of cosmetic and restorative procedure takes an artist skill since you dentist has to repair and rejuvenate your teeth, while also having to improve the function and appearance of your smile. The material your dentist uses for dental bonding is composed of composite resin that hardens and fuses to your tooth when a specialized light is shined on it.
Dental Bonding Procedure:
- First your dentist will start by applying an etching solution to your tooth/teeth that will be receiving the bonding material. The solution gently roughens the surface of your tooth to create a strong between the tooth and composite resin.
- Then a thin layer of the bonding resin is placed on the surface of your tooth and is seal with a special kind of light. Many layers can be added and hardened. Each layer takes a couple minutes to harden.
- After your dentist will start to sculpt the material to the desired shape and then is colored to match the shape of your very own natural teeth.
- Finally to finish, the bonding material is polished until it’s entirely smooth.
The dental bonding can take up to two hours, but the results can last you up to ten years if taken care of properly. For more information concerning dental bonding, contact Barmby and Frick Prosthodontist in Walnut Creek, CA at 925-934-5526 or visit our website at www.barmbyfrickprosthodontics.com.
