Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite material is applied to the tooth and then hardened with a special light. As a result, this material “bonds” to the tooth and can help improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Aesthetics are the main advantage of this procedure, but it can also be used for the following purposes:
- Cosmetic improvement
- Protect sensitive teeth
- Replace silver fillings
- Repair decay
- Repair chips or cracks in teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Change the shape of teeth
Bonding restores beauty and functionality to teeth, and Dr. Lupy D. Gonzalez can accomplish great results with this procedure. After bonding, your teeth will be stronger, your smile brighter, and you will feel more confident. The smile you have always wanted may not be far away. Our dentist provides dental bonding in Houston, Texas, that can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
The bonding process is usually completed in one visit. The surface of the tooth will be prepared and conditioned for the application of a putty-like material called resin. The resin is then applied with careful sculpting, shaping, and coloring to contribute to the naturally grown teeth in your mouth. A high-intense light then causes the resin to harden (bond) to the surface of your teeth. The resin is then smoothed and polished to look and feel like your naturally grown teeth.
After the procedure, you will be given instructions for care and maintenance of the new bond. By following consistent hygiene practices and attending your regularly schedule dental appointments to Clearpoint Dentistry, you will aid in the life of the bond.
