Composite Dental Bonding
Bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.
Here's How it Works
Nancy Shiba, DDS prepares the tooth surface so the bonding material will adhere. Once it has been applied, Nancy Shiba, DDS will shape it so it has a natural appearance. Then the material is allowed to harden, usually with the help of a light. Finally, the composite is polished and buffed so that the surface is smooth.
Bonding is a perfectly adequate and more affordable solution to certain dental problems. Dental bonding can take less time to accomplish and may not even require anesthesia. Depending upon the issue, your dental benefits may cover it. The material is not quite as durable as porcelain veneers and crowns.
Please don't procrastinate if you have a dental problem, but are worried about the time, cost or pain involved. Perhaps dental bonding can offer you a solution. Give us a call at (669) 306-7669 so we can discuss options with you.
