Dental bonding is a cosmetic option for repairing teeth that are chipped, cracked, fractured, stained, discolored, and mishappen. In addition, tooth bonding can be used to stabilize the tooth root. Patients who do not want a permanent restoration benefit from dental bonding. Learn about the ideal candidate for tooth bonding as well as the bonding process below:
Is Dental Bonding Right For Me?
Tooth bonding is a solution best suited to treat minor to moderate tooth damage. Dr. Catanzano may also recommend dental crowns or a tooth extraction for patients with severe cases of tooth damage. Before treatment, Dr. Catanzano will examine your teeth and gums, taking your budget, goals, and health into consideration. He may use digital imaging to accurately view the teeth and gums and ensure that treatment runs smoothly. If you think that you would be a good candidate for tooth bonding, call 202.315.2188.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Prior to treatment, Dr. Catanzano may use a local anesthetic to numb the affected area. He then applies a special solution to the affected tooth to create an adequate bonding surface. A tooth-colored resin is shaped until the desired aesthetic is reached. After the resin is formed and molded, the bonded material is cured using a special UV light. After the bonded tooth is cured, it is gently polished and shined to create a seamless finish.
Patients can enjoy their new bonded smile immediately after their appointment. A bonded tooth can last many years with proper care and maintenance. Be sure to practice proper oral hygiene to maintain your dental health and protect the teeth.
