When it comes to dental materials, composite resin has got to be one of the most versatile. Not only can it restore teeth damaged by decay, but it can do so while keeping your smile’s overall appearance in mind. In the case of cosmetic bonding, it’s the perfect affordable treatment for those with chips, cracks, gaps, and discolorations in teeth, especially if you only have one or two teeth to restore! Give Texas Dentistry a call to get started planning your new smile with cosmetic dental bonding in Kaufman.
Firstly, the tooth is lightly etched at its surface, before the bonding liquid is applied. When the liquid has set, a plastic resin is then applied to the tooth, which the dentist will sculpt into the proper shape. The resin is then left to set before it is finally smoothed and polished to give the appearance and feel of a natural tooth
Bonding is usually completed in a single visit and serves to dramatically improve the appearance of the tooth. The plastic resin is not as strong as natural tooth enamel, though, and is, therefore, more prone to breakage and staining. Bonding lasts an average of three to five years, after which time it will need to be repaired.
