Bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure, which allows dentists to repair or reshape the smiles of people who wish to have an affordable and non-invasive way to correct cracked, uneven or chipped teeth. Cornerstone Dental Associates in Crossroads, TX offers you quality cosmetic bonding solutions that can be completed in a single visit to our clinic and need no anesthesia.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to correct the following problems:
- Decayed teeth
- Teeth with gaps or spaces between them
- Chipped teeth
- Tooth roots that have been exposed due to gum recession
- Uneven teeth
- Extremely discolored teeth
During the procedure, the teeth on which bonding is to be performed are isolated from the other teeth and prepared by applying a conditioning liquid that opens the pores to allow the bonding material to attach easily. The bonding resin is then applied to the teeth, and the composite is cemented in place before drying it. Several layers of the composite material are applied until the desired thickness has been achieved. The bond is then hardened using a special light. Once the material has set, it is smoothened and polished to make it look more natural.
Bonding is a long lasting procedure and can last several years. Just like most other cosmetic procedures, bonding is subject to wear, tear and discoloration, and will need to be replaced after some time.
