The Dental Bonding Process
Dental bonding uses the same high quality composite resin used for tooth-colored fillings. The process is simple. We numb the area to be treated, remove any damaged or decayed tissue, smooth any sharp edges, and then the dentist applies an etchant material to create a more porous surface. When the tooth-colored bonding material is applied to the surface following etching, there are numerous small pits and grooves that the putty like resin can seep into. Once we shape the composite into place, a curing light is used to harden it. Next, the bonding material is smoothed and polished. The entire treatment is completed in just one short appointment, so you can come into our office with numerous dental faults and leave with a perfect smile.
Uses for Dental Bonding
We’ll recommend dental bonding for patients in a variety of situations. Dental bonding is a great solution for patients with minor chips, cracks, or stains. Patients with deeper cracks or larger gaps in their teeth may need to consider a more advanced cosmetic dentistry option.
During a consultation, we’ll examine your smile, and a skilled cosmetic dentist will walk you through your options and help you find the best treatments for your unique needs. Every patient will receive a personalized cosmetic plan that will combine any number of treatments to deliver a beautiful smile.
Caring for Your Smile After Esthetic Dental Bonding
Esthetic dental bonding is porous like natural tooth structure, so it can absorb staining pigments over time. For this reason, it’s important you continue to care for your smile with thorough at-home hygiene and regular appointments with your Torrance dentist. This will prevent excessive wear and keep your newly enhanced smile looking great. We will likely recommend that you use a soft bristled toothbrush and minimally abrasive toothpaste to also maximize the longevity of your dental bonding.
