Your Dental Bonding Procedure
When you are seeking a dental bonding treatment, you are looking to correct an irregular or unsightly tooth. The dental bonding procedure provides you with an adhesive substance which, when directly applied to your tooth, either builds it up (to repair cracking and chipping) or sculpts your tooth into a more even, natural-looking shape.
Little to no preparation is involved with dental bonding. Dr. Roher can select a composite resin color that exactly matches the shade of your existing teeth by selecting a composite resin color. During the procedure, known as direct composite bonding, Dr. Roher applies the composite material to repair chips and cracks, build up any worn edges of your teeth, and close any existing gaps to help you achieve your smile goals.
The procedure can typically be completed in one office visit. Dental bonding is one of the more popular and less expensive options for your cosmetic dentistry treatment.
