What issues can dental bonding correct?
Dental bonding can repair decayed teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, close spaces or gaps between teeth, and help change the shape of teeth. Dental bonding can also improve stained, discolored or yellow teeth due to aging, drinking coffee or wine, or enamel erosion.
What is the dental bonding procedure?
Using a tooth-colored resin material, dental bonding is a durable plastic that is applied to the teeth and hardened using a special light. This light helps the material bond to the tooth, which gives a beautiful, natural result!
Dental bonding is painless and requires only minimal alteration to your existing teeth. Your teeth will be prepared by lightly etching the surface of the teeth. Bonding liquid is then applied to the surface to hold the plastic resin in place. The resin is sculpted and shaped and then hardened using a laser light. Finally, the material is trimmed and polished. Dental bonding typically requires no anesthesia and takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth to complete.
How long does dental bonding last?
Your dental bonding treatment at North Boulder Dental will be customized to your needs and ideal color matching for your teeth color type. With proper care and maintenance, daily brushing, and regular checkups, your dental bonding can last 3 to 10 years.
Who should consider dental bonding?
