Are your teeth chipped, cracked, or worn down? If you wish to restore the beauty of your smile, Dr. Bryce E. Justesen may recommend dental bonding in Mesa, Arizona. Dental bonding is the process by which our dentist applies a tooth-colored material to a tooth or teeth and then bonds it in place with a special light. Dental bonding may be used to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken
- Improve the color of stained teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Make teeth appear longer
- Improve the shape of teeth
- Protect exposed tooth roots
To perform dental bonding, our dentist will first use a shade guide to choose a color of composite resin material that will match the shade of your natural teeth. Your tooth will be etched and a conditioning liquid will be applied to aid the bonding process. The resin material is then applied, molded, and smoothed. A special light is used to harden the material. Our dentist will then trim, shape, and polish the final result.
We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dental bonding and to schedule a consultation with our dentist.
