Dental Bonding in La Jolla, Del Mar, & Pacific Beach
Dental bonding is an excellent option if you are looking to achieve a beautifully rejuvenated smile free of flaws like chips, cracks and other imperfections. This dental procedure uses a tooth-colored, durable resin material that is bonded to the tooth for a smile that is both strong and healthy looking. Dental bonding can be used to repair and improve the appearance of teeth that have suffered decay, damage and discoloration, giving you a smile you are proud to show off.
How Can Dental Bonding Improve Your Smile?
Dental bonding is a versatile treatment that can be used to:
- Repair teeth damaged by tooth decay
- Restore cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth
- Change the size and/or shape of misshapen or misaligned teeth
- Fill in small spaces or gaps between teeth
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums
The Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding procedure is an easy procedure that (depending on the amount of teeth being bonded) is usually accomplished in one dental visit that typically takes an hour or less. Before treatment, we will use a shade guide to match the color of your teeth in order to select a matching shade of resin to use. Since the treatment is painless, no anesthetic is used. The resin, a putty-like material, is applied to the tooth or teeth, and then sculpted to the proper size and shape in order to make it look as natural as possible. An ultraviolet light is then focused onto the teeth so that the resin hardens and bonds to the tooth. The composite will be polished and buffed to a smooth appearance that matches the look of your other teeth.
