Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Cosmetic Bonding is a procedure that is used to mask imperfections in a tooth. It involves the application of a composite resin that matches the natural tooth color. Bonding is an excellent method for covering small imperfections on the surface of a tooth and enhance the beauty of your smile in a minimal, non-invasive way.
Bonding is done for the following issues with the teeth:
- To correct tooth gaps
- Repairing and filling teeth affected by cavities
- Repairing cracked and chipped teeth
- Beautifying a misshapen tooth
- Covering a discolored or stained tooth
- Protecting the root of a tooth that has been exposed due to gum recession
- Matching the height of a tooth with the other teeth in the mouth
Administration of a local anesthetic during the bonding procedure is done only if the tooth being repaired is affected by cavities. To begin with, we will closely examine the area and decide upon the exact shade of the bonding resin so that it matches with the rest of your teeth. The tooth surface is roughened up a bit and coated with a conditioning solution to prepare the tooth for the application of the bonding resin. The resin is then carefully molded on to the tooth and cured with a special curing light. Once the material has hardened, it is trimmed and shaped to make it look natural.
