Cosmetic Bonding

Our friendly dentists are adept at performing cosmetic bonding procedures. A dental cosmetic bonding is the process of fixing a chipped or broken tooth by using a special tooth-colored filler material. Bonding can also be used to fill big gaps between teeth and also to change the shape of a tooth. It is a very easy and straightforward procedure, and can be completed in one visit.
First, the dentist matches the color of the bonding material to the color of your teeth. Then they gently scratch the surface of the tooth to make the bonding material stick better. The dentist then applies the bonding material, which can be shaped and sculpted to its desired form. Once it is the right shape, the dentist will solidify the bonding material by using ultraviolet light or lasers. Once it is firm enough, the dentist will polish the material until it matches the shading of your natural teeth. It is important to remember that the bonding materials used are not as strong as your actual teeth. It is wise to avoid chewing your nails or crunching on ice cubes after you have had a cosmetic bonding done. The material will last up to five years if you practice good oral hygiene.
