Dental bonding can be used to restore a wide range of dental concerns. This procedure can be used to address the following dental issues:
- To close gaps or spaces between the teeth
- To change the shape of a tooth
- To change the length of the teeth
- To correct dental discoloration from staining or yellowing over time
- To fix a chipped, cracked, or fractured tooth
- To protect a tooth root that is exposed due to gum recession
- To repair tooth decay; used as a filling in place of an amalgam filling
Dental bonding is a versatile dental procedure that provides an easy method of restoring a tooth.
The method of procedure for dental bonding is done in just a few steps:
- The dentist will create a resin that has been color-matched to your original teeth.
- The tooth or teeth that are being treated will be roughened, and a conditioning liquid will be applied to the tooth. These two aspects allow the tooth to prepare to receive the resin.
- The resin material will be placed on the tooth or teeth, and it will be molded and shaped into the desired position.
- A special curing light will be used to harden the resin, and it will “bond” with the tooth.
- The tooth will be polished so that it has a natural sheen to match your other teeth.
Dental bonding is a straightforward procedure that has significant results. Taking less than an hour in most cases, dental bonding is an ideal solution for many dental issues. Contact Gwinnett Family Dental Care today!
