Do you have spaced, cracked, or discolored teeth that are preventing you from looking and feeling your best? If so, you may benefit from bonding, a simple technique that can easily correct dental issues with little or no tooth preparation.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin is brushed onto the teeth and permanently cured with a special high-intensity light. This material fills in cracks, evens out misshapen teeth, addresses gaps, and even covers stains.
Whether you realize it or not, you may have already received some type of dental treatment involving either form of dental bonding: direct composite bonding or adhesive bonding of a restoration (crown, bridge, porcelain veneer) that was created in a laboratory or in-office.
Tooth bonding at Pecan Park Dental can help address:
- Teeth with minor surface cracks
- Teeth with chipped or worn edges
- Localized stains or discolored spots on a tooth
- Areas where the tooth enamel has worn thin
What is the process for dental bonding?
Tooth bonding is a straightforward and simple treatment at Pecan Park Dental. First, the composite resin material is mixed to the appropriate shade that matches your natural teeth. Then the resin is applied to the necessary teeth to create a flawless smile. Next, a special light is used to permanently cure, or harden, the resin onto the teeth. The resin application and curing may be repeated a couple more times until the desired results are achieved. It’s that easy!
