Good oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings can do a great deal for the health and appearance of your teeth. But sometimes cosmetic help is necessary to give you the pearly whites you desire.
Tooth bonding treatments can help repair damage or discoloration caused by decay, close gaps between teeth, and for other cosmetic purposes.
Tooth Bonding Treatment in Surf City, North Carolina
What is tooth bonding?
Bonding is the application of a composite resin material that matches the color of the tooth. It may be used to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, discolored or misaligned teeth.
Is it a long procedure?
No. Tooth bonding can usually be completed in 30 minutes to an hour.
How is tooth bonding done?
- The surface of the tooth will be etched and roughened so that the resin will stick.
- A conditioning gel is applied to help the resin stick.
- The composite is placed on the tooth, then hardened with intense light.
- The tooth is then shaped and polished to give it the right shape and appearance.
