Oklahoma City Tooth Bonding

If you have a chip, spot, or other minor defect with your front teeth that you want repaired, tooth bonding is a great solution. It can even close up small gaps between your teeth. Using a composite resin that can be hand sculpted and then hardened and polished, an experienced dentist can match your tooth color perfectly. However, bonding is not a good solution for a major smile renovation. In that case you may want to use porcelain. Porcelain is much more durable and stain-resistant.

The Tooth Bonding Procedure

First, the surface area of the tooth where the bonding will take place is roughened slightly to make it easier to apply. A composite restorative bonding agent is then applied over the defective area. Dr. Swearingen will shape it and use a special light that initiates the light-activated accelerators that are in the resin. This light hardens the bonding material. The edges may be feathered so that the repair becomes undetectable. The final step is for it to be trimmed and polished. Well done dental bonding is indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
