Why Dental Bonding?
If you have a chipped tooth, gaps, discolorations, worn-out teeth, or are in need of provisional restoration prior to more permanent and lasting veneers, then you are probably a candidate for dental bonding. At Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, the process uses composite resin to close gaps between teeth, eliminate minor discolored spots and repair chips. It can also be used to repair certain types of front teeth fractures. This procedure utilizes the same composite materials and process used to perform composite resin fillings.
Using a high-strength, custom color-matched resin, expert cosmetic dentist Dr. Broome can conceal the damaged area and reinforce the tooth, thereby creating a picture-perfect smile that looks entirely natural. Learn more about dental bonding here by visiting ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Teeth Repair Procedure
Bonding is initiated by lightly roughening the area to be restored. This procedure done at Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry does not usually require the use of local anesthesia. The roughened tooth surface is etched with a special acid gel, thoroughly washed and treated with primers and light-cured resins to enhance adhesion. Composite resin closely matching the color of the tooth is applied in layers and sculpted to the desired shape. A high intensity curing light is used to harden the composite. Then, final shaping and polishing is used to achieve the perfect smile.
