Tooth Bonding in South Euclid, OH
At Bright Tiger Dental – South Euclid, we offer various cosmetic and restorative dental services, including dental bonding, to repair minor imperfections in teeth.
When whitening treatments have failed to brighten your smile, or the teeth have sharp edges and gaps, tooth bonding can repair, restore, or enhance the smile.
The Basics of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding restores a damaged or imperfect smile by rebuilding the visible tooth, creating a new surface free from damage and discoloration. Using a tooth-colored resin, the dentist molds the tooth’s surface, hiding imperfections, restoring minor damage, and creating a clean, aligned smile.
Cosmetic bonding also can hide imperfections in the shape and structure of teeth, such as gaps, oddly-shaped teeth, and teeth with sharp edges due to breaks or cracks. Dental bonding can also build up and reshapes undersized teeth for a uniform appearance.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Whether you need the dental bonding procedure for cracked tooth repair or purely cosmetic reasons, the dentist will first prepare the tooth’s surface. For the tooth-colored resin to stick to the tooth, the surface of the tooth enamel needs to be etched.
After preparing the surface, your dentist applies a liquid bonding material to the tooth. The composite resin, applied next, adheres to the liquid bonding material and the tooth beneath.
The dentist works on the resin, molding and sculpting it to shape and then smoothing it until it blends perfectly with the surrounding teeth. An LED light sets the resin, hardening the composite and liquid bonding material.
When the materials harden entirely, the dentist polishes them until the tooth is smooth and shiny like the teeth around it. When finished, the tooth should be indistinguishable from your other teeth.
Dental bonding is also used in place of porcelain veneers. Veneers require casting impressions of the teeth so that the shells can be custom-made to fit. Veneers also need more of the tooth to be removed, though not nearly as much as required for crowns. Instead, the dentist can use cosmetic bonding to restore the tooth’s surface with minimal loss of the original tooth.
