A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or misshapen teeth. You now have choices that can help you smile with confidence. Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself.
Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface. If your teeth are chipped, broken, cracked or badly stained or have slight gaps, ask Dr. Sudati about bonding.
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth-colored materials that are attached or bonded to the tooth surface. The process can improve unsightly stains from coffee, tea, tabacco or certain medications taken in childhood. Bonding sometimes is used to correct chips or to fill small cavities. The bonding process involves preparing the tooth surface with an etching solution. The solution allows the bonding material (resin-based composites) to better adhere to the tooth. Resins of various colors are carefully blended to match the color of the exsisting tooth. The resin is applied, contoured into the proper shape and hardended using a special light or chemical process. The bonded tooth then is smoothed and polished to appear natural. Bonding usually can be completed in one visit.
