What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a dental procedure where your Saint Paul dentist applies composite resin directly to your teeth. This is the same tooth-colored material that is used to fill cavities; your dentist matches the shade to blend with your existing teeth. Patients can get a professional teeth whitening treatment to whiten yellow or stained teeth prior to the dental bonding procedure.
How Can Dental Bonding Change Your Smile?
At Highgrove Dental Care, patients can benefit from dental bonding to correct many smile flaws, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or fractured teeth
- Small cavities
- Resizing and shaping teeth
- Stained teeth
- Replacing metal fillings
- Fix gaps between teeth
Dental bonding is an excellent fix for small to moderate teeth flaws. More severe cosmetic dental issues may need different procedures.
What Is the Dental Bonding Process?
Dental bonding typically does not require anesthetics to numb the area since the composite resin is added directly to the tooth. If it is used to fill a cavity, your dentist will use a local anesthetic.
Your Saint Paul dentist will apply the composite resin to your tooth and shape it, so it maintains natural grooves and curves. Once we shape it correctly, we use a curing light to harden it before polishing it.
