Dental bonding is a process used by Studio City cosmetic dentists as well as other dental professionals to fix cosmetic defects such as crooked teeth, gap teeth, and even chipped teeth. Such defects are fixed by applying resin like material to the teeth. When this material is applied to your teeth, it will bond to them, affixing them permanently for stability and lasting effect. After the resin hardens, your teeth will look and feel great.
The material is the color of teeth, and it hardens as it bonds to your teeth. When the procedure is completed, your bonded tooth will look like the rest of your teeth. The procedure takes between 30-60 minutes per tooth, so if you have a few teeth that need to be done, then you might have to make multiple trips to our office, so plan accordingly.
When you meet with our staff, we will help you decide which shade of material we should choose in order to best match the rest of your teeth. After preparation for the application process, the resin is applied. It will then be exposed to ultraviolet light, causing it to harden. If there is excess material, it will be trimmed off at the end.
If you have crooked teeth, discolored teeth, gap teeth, decayed teeth or any other of a number of possible issues, then you should consider dental bonding. Contact our Studio City cosmetic dentist office and you will soon be on your way to a stronger smile!
