Bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure we use frequently at Ritchie Dental Group in Marble Falls and Brady TX. It’s one of the easiest ways we have to improve the appearance of a tooth that is chipped, cracked, or even discolored.
Bonding is a fairly simple and straight-forward procedure. In fact, in most cases, we don’t even need to use anesthesia, unless we’re filling a cavity. Depending on the complexity of a given case, bonding usually takes thirty minutes to an hour.
After roughening the part of the tooth we’re working on, we apply a bonding agent that will a composite resin material to the tooth. Once the resin is in place, it is molded into shape and hardened with an ultraviolet light.
Finally, the composite material is polished into its final appearance. We’re generally able to match its color to the color of your teeth, so when we’re done, the treated area is virtually indistinguishable.
