Tooth Bonding Dentist Houston - Elite Dental Wellness

Cosmetic & Preventive Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an ideal solution for fixing chipped or misshapen teeth. This procedure includes the application of tooth-colored resin material for restoring the shape. This strong plastic material is applied directly and is hardened with the help of a curing light that bonds it to the patient’s teeth.

Apart from being ideal for restoration purposes, dental bonding can also be utilized as a cosmetic procedure. The entire structure of your teeth can be changed through this treatment, making them more aesthetically appealing. Trained dentists are capable of tweaking your smile within few hours.

Dental bonding can be considered as a solution for the following conditions:
  • Repairing decayed teeth using composite resin

  • Repairing cracked or chipped teeth

  • Closing the unwanted spaces between teeth

  • Improving discolored teeth

  • Making the teeth look longer than before

  • For changing the teeth shape

  • For protecting the exposed root

The Dental Bonding Procedure

When it comes to the tooth bonding procedure, a little preparation is needed to ensure the bonding is successful. The dental bonding treatment takes less than sixty minutes for a single tooth.

Anesthesia

Anesthesia is not required during the treatment unless it is used for filling decayed tooth.

Shade Guide

A shade guide is used to help select the proper resin color, according to the color of the patient’s tooth.

Tooth Surface Preparation

The surface of the affected tooth is then prepared by roughening the surface of the tooth before applying a conditioning liquid. This process helps the material used for bonding stick to the tooth properly.

Resin Application

The tooth-colored resin is then applied and molded into the desired shape to make the tooth look like new again.

Curing Light

A laser, or curing light, is used for hardening the material into place. The bond is solid and will last for years if your teeth are taken care of.

Excess Resin Removed

In case of excess resin material, it can be further trimmed and shaped by the drill and/or sanding.

Resin is Polished

Finally, polish is applied for making it match the sheen of existing teeth.
