A cost effective method to make dental repairs, dental bonding makes the tooth look new again without causing too much damage.
This is a cosmetic procedure wherein a tooth-colored composite material is used. This material is applied to the portion of the tooth that needs repair. Once it is applied, it is then sculpted, hardened and then polished into the desired shape. Ideal for small dentistry repairs like chipping or fixing of broken tooth or for closing gaps between the teeth. Sometimes, dental bonding is also used in filling cavities.
A gentle phosphoric acid is applied to the surface of the teeth which helps to roughen the surface. Bonding materials only stay of rough surfaces. Once the surface becomes rough, the material is placed on the tooth. A special light, which provides the required heat to dry the material, is then used. Once it dries, the material is then polished till it becomes smooth and gives a natural shine.
A very easy procedure, dental bonding typically requires only one dental visit and the entire process can be accomplished in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
