Dental bonding is a beneficial dental treatment that successfully improves the health and appearance of your smile. It can be used to repair decayed teeth, restore chipped or cracked teeth, improve discolored teeth, close spaces between teeth, and much more.
When you come into Johnson Ranch Dental for dental bonding, you can expect the following treatment steps:
Step 1 – Preparation
Little preparation is needed when you are bonding a tooth. All your dentist needs to do to prepare is choose a shade of resin color that matches perfectly with your tooth.
Step 2 – The bonding process
Once he has chosen the perfect shade, your dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth and will apply a conditioning liquid to it. These two steps will help the bonding adhere to the tooth. Then, the tooth-colored putty is applied to the tooth and then molded and smoothed into the desired shape. Next, your dentist will harden the bonding material with a special ultraviolet light or laser. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim, shape, and polish it to make sure it has a beautiful appearance.
Step 3 – Time to completion
Dental bonding should only take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete per tooth.
As you can see, this dental treatment is easy and painless. It also helps you quickly and successfully achieve your smile goals.
