Do the imperfections in your teeth drive you crazy? Do you like your smile in general, but only see its chips or uneven lengths when you dental bondinglook in the mirror? Thankfully, there is a dental procedure to fix these imperfections and give you your smile back. With help from your Rocky Hill, CT dentists at Family Dental Care, you can achieve your ideal smile.

What is dental bonding? 
Dental bonding involves using a tooth-colored composite resin, which is a type of plastic, to reshape the imperfections in the teeth. Bonding is often used alongside dental contouring, which shapes the teeth by using a dental drill with various bits to shave tiny amounts of enamel off the tooth. Bonding is one of the easiest and fastest ways to change your smile. Additionally, it is generally one of the cheapest options. The bonding procedure takes around 30 minutes, depending on how many teeth are being worked on and how extensive the flaws being fixed are.

What does dental bonding repair? 
Bonding can repair the following flaws in the teeth:

  • uneven tooth length
  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • discolorations
  • stains
  • abnormally shaped teeth

What is the procedure for dental bonding? 
First, your Rocky Hill cosmetic dentist chooses the correct shade of composite resin for your teeth. The resin comes in many colors as to blend in with your natural teeth flawlessly. Before performing the bonding procedure, your dentist must prepare the teeth. An etching solution placed on the teeth roughens them. Another liquid applied to the teeth helps the adhesive bond with the tooth. After preparation, your dentist applies the composite resin to each tooth undergoing the bonding procedure. He or she shapes molds the resin into the necessary shape, then uses a special bonding light to harden and set the material. The material is then trimmed, further shaped and polished to a perfect shine.
