What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure which involves
placing a tooth-colored composite material on the teeth to restore their
structure or shape, or to close gaps between the teeth. Dental bonding
is also a welcomed alternative to metal fillings, specifically for patients
who have cavities in the front teeth. The procedure is a safe and quick
alternative to other cosmetic treatments such as
dental crowns and teeth whitening. In fact, the entire tooth bonding procedure can be
completed in just one office appointment. In addition, it is among the
most affordable treatment options. The procedure can be used to correct
cosmetic imperfections in a single tooth, or it can be used on several
teeth to transform the smile. Patients who receive dental bonding treatment
enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
During an initial appointment, the dentist will evaluate your candidacy
for dental bonding. It is important to note that composite resin, which
is the main component of dental bonding, does not respond to teeth whitening
treatments, so any whitening procedure should be performed prior to dental
bonding. If you are a candidate for the procedure, the dentist will begin
preparing the tooth by applying a conditioning gel to help the composite
bond to the tooth. Although this procedure is minimally invasive, the
dentists understand that some patients experience anxiety or extreme discomfort
during dental appointments, and are pleased to offer a number of options for
sedation dentistry in Katy from their Houston, TX, office. Prior to beginning treatment, the dentist
will discuss these options with you.
After preparing the tooth, the dentist applies the tooth-colored composite
to the teeth. The bonding material is then shaped to the desired appearance
before sealing it using an ultraviolet light. After the composite bonding
has dried, final refinements are made to create a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
