A Background on Dental Bonding

Staring at a set of wonderful-looking teeth everyday never ceases to put a smile on your face. For starters, you can easily invite your special someone to go out with you on a Saturday night. Secondly, you can attend various social functions without feeling insecure with the way you look. Aside from that, you can confidently answer questions thrown at you during job interviews. Therefore, as soon as cavities start making their way into your teeth, the joy that you feel immediately turns into disappointment. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with unattractive teeth for a long time thanks to the dental bonding services that your Plano dentist offers.

To give you an idea on what dental bonding really is, we have prepared a background on it below:

Dental bonding defined

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves placing a tooth-colored resin material on the decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored areas of your teeth. This material is capable of bonding to your teeth, bringing back their natural appearance.

The dental bonding process

During the dental bonding process, your dentist first chooses the color of the bonding material that perfectly matches your teeth’s color using a shade guide. Upon determining the appropriate color, your dentist roughens up your teeth’s surface areas. He then applies a conditioning liquid to your teeth, so that the bonding material can firmly attach to them. After preparing your teeth, your dentist places the bonding material on the affected areas and moulds it until it reaches its desired shape. Once your dentist is done shaping the bonding material, he uses an ultraviolet laser to harden it. Finally, your dentist puts the finishing touches on the bonding material by further trimming it and polishing it.
