Dental bonding is a quick, easy, and minimally invasive procedure the team at Roseroot Dental performs to restore or cosmetically improve your teeth. It involves applying cosmetic resin to your tooth to strengthen or improve upon its appearance.
Roseroot Dental is committed to a mercury-free dental practice and only uses the best and safest materials in their dental bonding procedures. The team is highly skilled in the treatment and makes sure that your bonding is conservative and discreet.
What conditions does dental bonding treat?
Dental bonding is both a restorative and cosmetic treatment, and the team at Roseroot Dental can use it to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Teeth that are chipped or cracked
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that are too small or uneven with the rest of your smile
Dental bonding is also used to close gaps between your teeth.
What are the advantages of dental bonding?
Dental bonding has several advantages, including:
- More cost-effective than other restorative and cosmetic procedures
- Doesn’t require multiple visits to the office
- Minimally invasive procedure
Because dental bonding is such a conservative treatment, it doesn’t require any anesthesia, and there isn’t any recovery or downtime after the procedure. The whole process takes 30-60 minutes, after which you can resume your daily activities as normal.
What happens when I get dental bonding?
When you get dental bonding at Roseroot Dental, the team starts by using a shade guide to select a color for your composite resin that most closely matches the color of the rest of your teeth.
Then, they use a special tool to make the surface of your tooth slightly rough, which enables them to treat your tooth with a special liquid that helps your bonding stick.
Next, the team applies the shade-matched composite resin to your tooth, shapes it so that it blends in with the rest of your natural teeth, and hardens it with ultraviolet light. After your bonding has hardened, the team performs any finishing touches, which might involve further shaping.
