Do you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken? Are your teeth worn down? Dr. Catalina Cruz Johnson may recommend dental bonding in Houston, Texas. Bonding involves adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth to the front of the tooth. This is performed to repair damage caused by decay, to alter the alignment of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth, or for other cosmetic purposes.
To prepare your tooth for dental bonding, our dentists will use a shade guide to choose a composite resin color that will match the shade of your natural teeth. The surface of the tooth is roughened in order to accept the bonding. A gel is applied so the resin will adhere to the surface of the tooth. This allows for a strong bonding process. The composite is then placed on the tooth, molded, and smoothed to an attractive shape. An ultraviolet light or a laser is used to cure the material. The last step is shaping and polishing to give a lustrous finish. Dental bonding takes only 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
