Dental bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored resin is applied to teeth to reduce the appearance of minor aesthetic flaws, including chips, stains and worn enamel. Our Los Angeles dental bonding specialist can help you determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.
Dental bonding may be appropriate for you if you have:
• Chipped or cracked teeth
• Discolored teeth
• Spaces between your teeth
• Short or misshapen teeth
• Decayed areas
• Exposed roots due to gum recession
Our specialist for dental bonding in Los Angeles can often complete the process in just one dental appointment. Fast and easy, dental bonding rarely even requires anesthesia unless the procedure is being used to treat cavities.
Dental Bonding Los Angeles
We begin by determining the best shade of resin for your teeth. Our Los Angeles dental bonding specialist will then clean out any decayed material, roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a special liquid that helps condition the resin material so that it can form a secure bond. The resin will then be applied carefully and precisely to match the unique contours and folds of that specific tooth. Once it is cured using a special ultraviolet light, our specialist for dental bonding in Los Angeles will trim it and polish it to perfection so that it closely matches your own natural teeth.
Dental bonding generally takes about 30 minutes and is often considered one of the easiest and most affordable procedures in cosmetic dentistry today. Little natural enamel must be removed, and bonded teeth require little special maintenance. Bonding is not impervious to stains, which means you may need to alter your diet or habits slightly to ensure a longer lasting, more attractive restoration.
