Love Your Beautiful Smile With Tooth-Colored Bonding
Tooth-colored bonding is typically made from a resin composite that comes in a variety of colors to best match your natural teeth. This is one of the most straightforward and simple treatments available to help you achieve your ideal smile.
At Woodland Lakes Dental, we offer a range of tooth-colored bonding to help ensure you get an exact match for your own natural tooth.
What is Tooth Bonding Used For?
Tooth bonding can be used to correct a number of dental issues and is, thus, a commonly used method for treating minor damage or other dental issues. The uses for tooth-colored bonding include:
- Hiding discoloration
- Repairing chips in teeth
- Reinforcing weakened or thinned enamel
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Straightening the look of a slightly crooked smile.
Tooth-colored bonding is especially useful for cosmetic corrections – and it is one of the least expensive cosmetic options out there! Plus, the process of application for tooth-bonding is relatively simple and non-invasive, making it a highly easy procedure to carry out.
How Tooth Bonding is Applied
The first step to any tooth-colored bonding application is matching the bonding to your natural tooth color. At Woodland Lakes Dental, we will take the time necessary to give you an exact match.
Once you have been color matched, the bonding is attached to your tooth by first roughening the surface of the natural tooth and then applying an adhesive agent that will help the bonding to attach to the surface of your tooth with greater ease.
Your dentist will then shape the tooth to match the general size and form of your other teeth for the most natural appearance possible. The process is then completed using a light or laser that hardens the material, followed by a tooth polishing as the finishing touch.
Because tooth-colored bonding is a non-invasive treatment, minimal numbing agents will be required which will reduce the overall cost as well.
