Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Cosmetic tooth bonding-what is it?
Cosmetic tooth bonding is an effective way to correct the defects in your teeth. It can fix broken, chipped, and discolored teeth and can also fill the gaps in between teeth. In the process, the dentists bond tooth-colored material to the affected area with adhesive. Often bonding material is also called composite resins and is similar to the material used for filling teeth.
A tactfully performed bonding will be similar to your original teeth. It will be a little secret between you and your dentist as no one will be able to distinguish between bonding and natural teeth. The entire process is quick and easy. Furthermore, our dentists at Royalty Dental Associates do not need any drilling for fitting the bonding to your teeth.
The cosmetic tooth bonding procedure
Our dentist, before putting resin, will apply a particular material to enamel that will make it a bit rough so that bonding sticks easily to teeth. After attaching resin properly to the tooth, the dentist will give a proper shape to it using special tools. The dentists then shine a blue UV light for a few seconds to harden the resin. Once the resin becomes hardened, the dentist will again give it a shape to correct sharp edges. To complete the process, the dentist polishes the bonding to give it a natural shining. At Royalty Dental Associates, the bonding process needs a single visit and would take around 30 minutes to one hour.
