Dental bonding is a very versatile cosmetic dental procedure that utilizes a resin-based material. It can be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, close the gaps between teeth, reshape the teeth, and can even be used as a dental filling.
Dental bonding is often used instead of veneers or crowns because it is considered one of the least invasive cosmetic dental procedures available. Also, dental bonding can usually be done in one visit without the need for anesthesia. In order to prepare your tooth for bonding, our dentists in Los Angeles will need to make your tooth a little bit rougher in order for the bonding to properly adhere to the tooth. After it is made rougher, a conditioning liquid is then applied to the tooth. The dentist will then match the shade of the bonding to the shade of your natural teeth. When the bonding is applied, it is secured to the tooth with the use of an ultraviolet light. It can last up to ten years in some cases.
If you have minor imperfections in your teeth that you would like to be filled in, contact our expert in dental bonding in Los Angeles to set up a consultation.
