A few minor chips or cracks can age your smile quite a bit, but you may not want to undergo an extensive restoration process. Dental bonding may be the ideal solution. Dental bonding is a fast, simple procedure that can be completed right in our office. Our Los Angeles dental bonding expert can help you decide if bonding is right for you.
Bonding is a procedure that uses composite resin to improve the look of a tooth. The resin can be matched to the color of the tooth, and it can be shaped to meet the contours of the tooth, too. Our expert in dental bonding in Los Angeles can use bonding to protect exposed roots or worn enamel, to repair chips and cracks, to close gaps and to restore small cavities. The procedure is versatile and can be used in many ways to improve and perfect your smile.
Dental Bonding Los Angeles
At your appointment, our Los Angeles dental bonding expert will examine the tooth to ensure your candidacy. In most cases, you will need no anesthetic because the process is so conservative. If there is decay, however, you may need a local anesthetic so that we can remove the decayed tissue. The surface of the tooth will be slightly roughened, and we apply a conditioning liquid that helps the composite bond with the tooth. The composite is applied in thin layers and cured using a special light. We shape, trim and polish it so that it blends beautifully into your smile.
Bonding is one of the fastest, most affordable, most conservative treatments in cosmetic dentistry, and it is so versatile that our expert in dental bonding in Los Angeles can use it to correct a wide range of flaws. It is also easy to take care of, and you just need to brush and floss the bonded tooth along with your other teeth to keep the bond strong and intact. We can explain all the benefits of bonding at your appointment.
