MORE ABOUT DENTAL BONDING
Tooth bonding is generally an inexpensive cosmetic dentistry procedure, and, unlike veneers or crowns, dental bonding does not require the removal of enamel. However, the composite resin is not as strong as other materials, so the material is prone to chipping and cracking and only lasts a few years.
During an initial consultation, your dentist will work closely with you to determine whether or not tooth bonding will be an effective repair for your chipped, discolored, or damaged tooth. Your dentist at Restorative and Implant Dentistry will perform a thorough examination to decide whether or not tooth bonding is the appropriate treatment for your long-term oral health goals. If you are in need of a stronger or more permanent repair, your Pompano Beach FL dentist may suggest that you consider veneers or a crown.
How is Tooth Bonding Performed?
Tooth bonding is generally done in one 30-minute visit. During an initial consultation, your dentist will match the shade of your teeth so that the composite resin used will blend in with your teeth. Your dentist will then prepare your tooth by etching it and applying a liquid that will help the bonding material adhere to your tooth. Once the material hardens, your dentist at Restorative and Implant Dentistry will shape the tooth.
