Fast and Easy Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Most patients will not need anesthesia or sedation. Our Citrus Heights patients love dental bonding because it allows them to achieve beautiful results with minimal cost or preparation. If you are in good health and have strong teeth with no major decay or infection dental bonding may be a great choice for smile improvement.
A Brief Description of the Bonding Procedure
Dental bonding is applied while the patient relaxes in a comfortable dental chair. In most cases, none of the existing enamel will be removed. Dr. Trubschenck will apply a bio-safe material called composite resin, a high-quality, putty-like compound that is applied to your enamel and sculpted into shape.
Very little preparation is necessary for dental bonding and anesthesia is generally not required beforehand. We will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that most closely matches the color of your existing teeth.
The surface of your tooth will be etched and a special cleaning/conditioning solution will be applied to allow the bonding resin to adhere to your tooth. Next, we will apply the bonding resin which is putty-like in consistency and can be molded into the desired shape necessary for your specific situation. Once the resin has been properly placed, molded and smoothed, we will use a special ultraviolet light that quickly hardens the resin.
After the resin has hardened completely, we will be able to fine-tune the shape of the resin as well as polish the material until it matches the sheen and overall texture of your natural teeth.
The entire process may take between 30 minutes to an hour to complete depending on your application requirements and how severe the initial issue was.
