Avoid further damage to your teeth
Dental bonding is perfect for treating a chipped or cracked tooth. It is also recommended for patients who don’t have enough budget for an expensive cosmetic dental procedure. Dental bonding is one of the easiest and cheapest dental procedures. With dental bonding, a dental composite made of plastic or resin is used as a tooth filling and is bonded to your teeth to correct minor imperfections. Dental bonding is typically used in filling a decayed tooth, repairing cracked or chipped teeth, improving discolored teeth, and filling spaces between teeth.
Glendora Dental Bonding
Dental bonding process is a short process depending on the extent of the problem. Local anesthesia may not be applied unless filling of a decayed tooth is needed. First your Glendora dentist will assess your problem and prepare the resin filling for your tooth. The color of the composite material will be matched to the shade of your teeth to make it look like your original teeth.
The surface of the tooth is etched and an adhesive material is applied. After proper color-matching and preparation of the tooth to be bonded, the resin is placed, hardened by a special light, shaped and polished. After that, the patient is good to go and can even go back to work right away.
With dental bonding you can easily solve your minor dental problem without spending a fortune. It can improve your teeth and doesn’t need much maintenance. Of course proper oral hygiene is a must to make your dental fillings last for 3 to 10 years.
