Teeth Bonding – A Restorative Dental Treatment
Teeth bonding is a dental procedure in which a tooth-colored material is prepared and hardened with a special light, which bonds the material to the tooth and restores your smile.
Reasons for Teeth Bondings:
- To repair damaged or decayed teeth
- To enhance apperance of discolored teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- To adjust shape of teeth
- To protect tooth root that has been exposed due to gums receding
Teeth Bonding Preparation
The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a teeth bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by your trusted Aurora dentist, Dr. Khan. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.
Teeth Bonding Procedure
The teeth bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip, or break than natural teeth. The teeth bonding treatment typically lasts three to five years before repair is needed.
