A dental bond is an easy way to repair minor tooth damage.
Our dentist can repair teeth that are cracked, chipped or worn. In order to restore the beauty of your smile, ou should talk to Dr. Bryce E. Justesen about 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 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
If you decide that you want a dental bond, our dentist will use a shade guide to choose a color of composite resin material that will match the shade of your natural teeth. We will condition the surface your tooth by slightly etching it, and applying a conditioning liquid. This process helps the bond to adhere to your tooth. We will then apply the resin material and then mold, and smooth it into the proper shape. We will harden your bond with a special light. Finally, our dentist will 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.
