A chipped, cracked, or imperfect tooth near the front of the smile is enough to make most patients self-conscious about how their smile looks. At Drs. of Smiles Gentle Family Dentistry, we offer composite resin bonding. Composite resin bonding is a simple procedure that can restore confidence in a single, pain-free appointment.. Dental bonding is the application of composite resin materials that are tooth colored and able to repair certain imperfections of the anterior teeth for Mesa, AZ patients.
What can composite resin bonding treat?
Our practice offers a number of versatile solutions for our patients to consider for repairing their smile. Composite resin bonding is used in many different situations, making it a wonderful choice for those seeking an affordable yet effective repair. Composite resin bonding can be used to correct:
- Small gaps
- Worn teeth
Why choose composite resin bonding?
Most patients decide to use composite resin bonding for many reasons. First and foremost, it can be completed in just one short visit to the dental practice. Second, it is extremely affordable for patients, especially when compared to more long-term solutions such as porcelain veneers. And third, composite resin bonding is natural-looking because it is matched in color with the patient’s natural tooth enamel. Composite resin bonding will last several years with proper care, though it is susceptible to staining and discoloration over time and will need to be replaced later on.
How is dental bonding placed?
First, the dentist roughens the surface of the teeth to ensure the resin application will hold on the tooth structure. A bonding gel is applied to the teeth, followed by the composite resin material. Using a specialized light, the composite resin bonding is hardened and cured, after which the dentist will file down and shape the restoration to the tooth to create a natural-looking repair.
