Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged.
Dr. Lackpour and Dr. Kowsari have been successfully transforming their patients’ smiles for many years by performing this technique.
How does dental bonding work?
The tooth may need to be prepared for dental bonding by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.
Considerations for Dental Bonding
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. Depending on the forces in the mouth, Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.
