Bonding materials are versatile, discreet, and long lasting, making them the perfect option for treating a variety of dental issues. Dental bonding is often used by our cosmetic dentist Laguna Hills to treat cavities, to seal off chipped teeth, and to correct teeth that are misshapen. The resin used in bonding can be colored to match the surrounding teeth, making them virtually undetectable. The procedure retains the maximum amount of natural tooth and is more affordable than other treatments that deliver comparable results like veneers.
Dental bonding takes about a half an hour to forty-five minutes per tooth, depending on how large the affected area is. First our dentist Laguna Hills will clean the tooth, then the enamel will be roughened to ensure secure bonding. When this is complete, a conditioning liquid will be applied to the area. Finally bonding resin in a shade that is matched to your enamel will be applied and hardened using an ultraviolet light. When the material has hardened, it will finally be filed and polished to match the texture of surrounding teeth.
Bonding can improve the appearance of your teeth and even help improve oral health if used to seal off cavities. If you are interested in how dental bonding can benefit you, call our office at (949) 558-2598.
