How Dental Bonding can be used to Restore Natural Teeth
- Posted on: Nov 30 2018
Galleria Dental Aesthetics is a dental practice in the area of McLean, VA that assists patients with a wide selection of services, including general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Patients who have had trauma to the smile, or have experienced other sorts of damage such as periodontal disease and tooth decay, may have permanent imperfections of the smile and the natural teeth. When problems such as this arise, patients are urged to visit with the team to learn more about solutions including composite resin bonding.
Dental bonding, or composite resin bonding, is a fast and affordable solution for patients who need to repair the appearance of the natural tooth. This material is commonly used in dentistry because it is versatile and beautiful. When properly prepared, it can look just like natural tooth enamel and blend in with the smile. Drs. Chong Lee, Joseph Oh, and Kirsten Lee are dedicated professionals who can use dental bonding in a variety of situations. It can be used to:
- Fix a tooth that has been chipped or cracked
- Cover a tooth that is not properly aligned or shaped
- Fill an area of decay within a tooth
- Disguise small gaps between teeth
How does it work?
First, a dentist consults with a patient to decide if this is the right solution for their needs. Second, the tooth is prepared, sometimes with the filing down of the natural enamel so the bonding can stick. Third, the bonding is applied and shaped to the tooth before it is cured and hardened with a special light. Fourth, the dentist files and polishes the bonding to finish the work.
