Dental Bonding For a Healthy and Beautiful Tooth

The material used to improve the appearance of your tooth is the same one that repairs and rebuilds a tooth damaged by decay. Composite resin is a medical grade plastic that is molded to fill either a cavity or reshape a tooth so that it looks more attractive. Either way, you have a tooth that is strong, durable and blends seamlessly with the natural color of your smile.

The Dental Bonding Procedure

Dental bonding is a fairly simple and straightforward procedure. It takes about an hour to complete, and Dr. Osseiran almost never needs to use a local anesthetic.

To prepare your tooth for bonding, a mildly acidic solution is applied to roughen the surface; dental cement adheres better after this step. The acid is rinsed away, and Dr. Osseiran applies a small amount of cement and composite resin to your tooth. Then the tooth is reshaped. A special curing light hardens the material. More layers are added until the perfect shape for your tooth is achieved. When the process is complete, that little flaw is gone and you have a smile that is picture perfect!
