Dental Bonding An Overview
Tooth bonding is an effective cosmetic aesthetic solution that can address a range of cosmetic dental concerns. Dental bonding provides patients with a quick, minimally invasive solution to chips, cracks or gaps. Tooth bonding is a cost-effective, semi-permanent cosmetic dental treatment that improves the aesthetic of the natural smile.
Tooth bonding is a suitable cosmetic treatment option for children and adult patients. With only minimal tooth preparation required, tooth bonding will not compromise the structure of the treated tooth. Dental bonding can be reversed and repaired later on. Owings Mills MD dentist Dr. Suman Chibb uses dental bonding to repair and improve the aesthetics of a patient’s natural and beautiful smile.
Dental Boding Can Fix:
- Chips or cracks
- Broken or damaged teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Discolored teeth
Dental Bonding What to Expect
The tooth bonding procedure is typically completed in just one visit to our Owings Mills, MD dentist office. With good oral hygiene and routine dental health exams at Owings Mills Dental Care, dental bonding can last for many years. Bonding may require maintenance in the future, but is a cost-effective way to quickly improve the aesthetics of your smile and to prevent additional damage or infection.
The first step to applying dental bonding is preparing the teeth. A minimal amount of tooth enamel is gently removed to make room for the bonding agent. The high-quality dental bonding material is color matched to adjacent teeth for a natural aesthetic. Dr. Chibb applies the bonding material directly to the prepared tooth and molded into shape. Dr. Chibb will communicate with patients to ensure they are fully satisfied with their end result.
Once the desired shape is achieved, a special light will be used to activate the hardening agent. The bonding will be polished to a natural shine leaving patients with a beautiful, aesthetic smile.
