Dental bonding covers a number of procedures performed in the office. Any time dental materials are permanently fixed to patients' teeth using high intensity light is considered dental tooth bonding.
Dental bonding is used in many situations:
Teeth bonding occurs whenever the cosmetic dentist adheres something to natural teeth during an in-office procedure. This is beneficial because tooth bonding only occurs under the careful hand of well trained professionals. Dental bonding requires a special solution that allows the bond to be permanent.
Tooth colored composites comprise an integral part of today's dental bonding. Tooth-colored fillings and dental veneers both benefit from the natural look of composite bonding.
After a consultation, our dentists will determine which procedures are right for you. Most cosmetic dental procedures do require some form of bonding. Corrections of small issues, such as cracks or gaps, will likely be handled through cosmetic contouring. Other procedures involving artificial dental pieces will be secured in the patient's mouth through a type of tooth bonding.
