Dental restoration work can take time, and not everyone wants a mouth full of dental work or at least doesn’t want everyone to see a mouth full of dental work. That’s where bonding is an excellent solution. Patients can get the smile they’ve wanted while they work on repairing all the damage done over the years to their smile.
How Does Bonding Work?
Bonding can be used on several teeth that have damage to make them look and feel normal. The best part of the process is that it doesn’t take long and is minimally invasive.
The bonding agent is made of a composite resin material placed over the teeth. The dentist may take an impression of the damage first and then apply the bonding agent, but once the bonding agent is applied, it will cover the damaged areas of the tooth or teeth. To make it more natural, the dentist can dye the bonding agent to match the natural color of your existing teeth.
The bonding agent is molded around the teeth and hardened using a special light. Even if the bonding agent has hardened, the dentist can continue to work on it and reshape it until the desired effect is reached. Consider getting dental bonding today if you want your smile back without waiting for dental restoration work.
