Dental bonding is a process in which tooth-colored resin is used to restore chipped, broken, discolored or jagged teeth. The treatment is very effective, and usually less costly compared to crowns or veneers. Not to mention- most dental bonding procedures can be performed in one visit to Subtle Smiles, allowing for an almost instantaneous cosmetic restoration.
What to Expect
Dental bonding usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes to complete. Dr. Youngs will first mix the resin bonding substance so that it matches the shade of your existing teeth. To help the tooth accept the substance, it must be roughened a bit, followed by placement and shaping. The bond will then be hardened by an ultraviolet light. Final shaping and polishing of the bond will then be performed to ensure a proper look and fit.
