What is Composite Bonding?
At Lilburn Family Dentistry, we recommend bonding for many patients who want to restore the look of their smile. Composite bonding is a process done similarly to veneers. Composite bonding can repair tooth decay, discoloration, cracks and chips of teeth, remedy small gaps between teeth and reshape teeth that have been worn down from excessive wear. Composite bonding can be done without having to modify your natural tooth structure as is required with veneers.
The Process of Composite Bonding
Composite bonding is a simple cosmetic treatment for patients who want to restore their beautiful smile without having to experience any pain. Some patients even complete the procedure without any use of an anesthetic or discomfort. The doctor at our Lilburn Family Dentistry office begins the process by carefully selecting the right shade to match the rest of your smile. Next, the tooth's surface is scraped and a special conditioner is placed on the surface to secure the bond on the surface of the tooth. Preparing the tooth's surface in this manner allows for the attachment of the bonding agent. Then, a putty-like resin is placed on the tooth. The dentist shapes and resizes the bond to achieve the desired outcome. Once this process is finished, the composite resin is cured with an ultraviolet light or laser. Finally, the doctor trims, shapes and polishes the treated tooth to match the rest of your smile.
Benefits of Composite Bonding
Composite bonding is a popular choice for patients who are seeking to enhance their smile. It is affordable and takes only one dental office visit to complete. No messy impressions are taken, virtually no wait time in between visits, and it's pain-free with practically no modifications made to your natural teeth. With this minimally invasive treatment, your smile can be made beautiful again. Practicing good oral hygiene with regular dental checkups can preserve the outcome.
