Dentistry offers more than one wonderful way of restoring the glory and function of decayed and broken teeth. One of them is cosmetic tooth bonding. It is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to restore broken teeth.
Bonding makes use of a resin that is similar to your natural tooth color to hide minor defects such as spacing irregularities, discolorations or chips, or to replace the missing structure of a tooth. The bonding resin is made of a combination of glass and plastic, which adds strength and translucency to the tooth it is applied to.
At the office of Dental Arts, we perform bonding skillfully and artistically, in order to ensure that the results are truly life-like and it is impossible to differentiate between the bonded tooth and its natural neighbors. The treatment can be completed in a single visit to our clinic, as it does not involve any laboratory work. First, the tooth surface is cleaned thoroughly to clear any plaque. The surface is etched with an acid gel to open the pores. The etching gel is rinsed, and a thin layer of the bonding liquid matching the natural color of your teeth is applied. The liquid fills the pores created by the acid gel to create a strong micromechanical bond. The tooth is exposed to a special curing light to help the bonding material to harden, before applying another layer and curing it again. Layers are made until the desired thickness has been achieved. The bonding material is then carefully shaped and polished, and your bite is checked to ensure it is proper.
If you are looking for a quick, affordable and minimally invasive way to correct minor tooth defects, then cosmetic bonding could be the solution for you. Schedule an appointment at Dental Arts today to know if bonding will work for you. Call us at (414) 462-3160.
