One of the quickest and easiest methods for improving the look of a person’s teeth is through composite bonding. The treatment consists of using tooth-colored resin to fix teeth that are damaged or decayed, while also boosting their overall appearance.
There are many uses for composite bonding, including:
- Filling cavities
- Fixing damaged teeth
- Color restorations
- Closing gaps
- Adjusting uneven tooth heights
- Correcting misshapen teeth
- Protecting tooth roots
Due to the simplicity of the procedure, a composite bonding treatment can be completed in just one visit. The process starts by thoroughly cleaning the tooth and removing any decay or deterioration that is present. Next, we will decide on a specific shade of resin to use. The goal is to use resin with a color that appears both healthy and natural. The resin will be applied to the tooth in multiple layers and hardened using a dental curing light.
Once the tooth has obtained the desired level of thickness, it will be allowed to fully dry so it reaches the proper consistency. To give the tooth a natural appearance, it will be buffed and polished. Once the patient is happy with the results, they will be provided with special instructions on how to properly care for the composite bonding. A composite bonding is designed to last from five to ten years with proper maintenance.
