How Dental Bonding Can Correct Flaws

Posted .

Cosmetic issues don’t need to prevent you from smiling your widest with confidence. Learn more about dental bonding in today’s post, which may be the perfect solution for you!

Tooth bonding is the application of composite resin to the surface of a tooth, that hardens to it and helps cover up small cosmetic flaws. We offer tooth bonding at Jones Bridge Dental Care, and can evaluate whether the procedure is right for you.

In dental bonding, Dr. Malikov, Dr. Nassen, or Dr. Rachman will rough up the exterior, much like you would do with a piece of wood that needs to be sanded before it can have stain applied. This happens before the dentist applies bonding to a tooth. The material is then able to adhere to your tooth, which is then set with a special light to help cure it. We will ensure a shade that matches closely to your tooth color, is applied, so the results are as authentic as possible.
After the resin has hardened, we will polish the tooth, so it looks much like your own natural teeth. The bonding process can be completed in one short visit, and doesn’t require anesthesia. The Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry suggests that bonding is best applied to chipped teeth. It can, therefore, also be used if you have large spaces between teeth, and if one tooth is smaller than the others, as well as with discolored teeth.
