Accidents happen, especially when your teeth are involved. You may have chipped or broken a tooth while eating something hard or playing sports. Or maybe you have teeth that are misshaped or discolored. Thankfully, The Smile Designer of Spring has the solution that will make sure that your teeth are looking good as new. We offer dental bonding procedures for patients in the Spring, TX area.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is made from a composite resin that is applied to your tooth. The composite is tooth-colored, so your teeth will look like new once your dentist applies it to the affected teeth. Once the bonding is placed, it will then be remolded to the tooth’s original shape. Once complete, it will be as if your tooth (or teeth) has never been damaged, discolored, or misshapen in the first place. It’s another reason why our restorative dental services are second to none for patients.
How The Dental Bonding Procedure Works
There are a couple of great things about this procedure: one, there is less prep work involved, and there is no anesthesia needed. However, if you have any existing tooth decay or dental issues, the procedure may need to be delayed until these are taken care of.
The dental bonding procedure starts off with the dentist applying a special gel that is designed to roughen up the tooth (or teeth). This is designed to accelerate the bonding resin. Your dentist will then perform a process called contouring. The dentist will then harden it with a special UV light. Finally, the dentist will contour and polish the tooth.
After the procedure, your dentist will give you post-procedural steps that you will need to follow. This will include making regular visits to your dentist for check-ups and cleanings and also following a plan that may include avoiding liquids that may have the potential to cause staining (i.e. coffee, tea, soda, etc.).
