Restore Your Smile with Dental Bonding
At AJS Dental, we offer dental bonding, an affordable solution to restore your smile. Many of our patients choose dental bonding to repair decayed, cracked, or chipped teeth. In some cases, dental bonding is used to improve the appearance of discolored teeth or even fill in the gap between teeth. When you visit our dental practice, Dr. Schwartz can restore your smile with a dental bonding in a single session that lasts under an hour. Other reasons why you might need dental bonding include:
- You want to lengthen your teeth
- You want to improve the natural appearance of your teeth
- You want to change the shape of your tooth
What Happens During a Dental Bonding Procedure?
After an initial consultation and exam, Dr. Schwartz will choose a resin that matches the natural color of your teeth. He will then prepare the surface of your tooth by etching the surface, allowing the dental bonding to easily adhere to the tooth. A bonding liquid is then applied and allowed to set before the plastic resin is applied. The resin will be molded and smoothed to the right shape and size, and will be hardened using a UV light or laser. Dr. Schwartz will make additional adjustments if needed, and once you are satisfied with the size and fit, he will polish your tooth to match the sheen of your natural teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
There are many reasons why you might consider dental bonding to improve the appearance of your teeth. If you are looking for a quick solution to repair a damaged tooth, this procedure can be completed in a single visit because it doesn’t require sending anything to a dental lab. Additionally, multiple bonds can be applied in a single visit if needed. Because the procedure is simple and painless, no anesthesia is needed. With a quick visit to AJS Dental, we can help you achieve a natural looking smile with dental bonding.
While dental bonding procedures offer a quick and affordable solution, the plastic resin used for this procedure is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel and typically lasts three to five years before needing a repair. If you are looking for a more permanent solution, Dr. Schwartz will be more than happy to tell you more about the other options we have available.
