Bonding and White Fillings
A dental bonding (or white filling) is a type of adhesive that connects to your natural teeth. It is a common treatment used to repair blemishes such as cracks or gaps in the mouth. This simple procedure will improve the appearance of your smile. A dental bonding can repair cracks, close gaps, and improve discolored teeth. They can even improve a tooth’s shape by lengthening it.
How Does a Dental Bonding Procedure Work?
Your dentist uses a plastic tooth-colored material to create the bonding. After the composite is set, it’s treated with a special light to help bond it to the targeted area. The dentist will later polish the filling to protect it from stains and early damage. The entire process takes anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes per tooth.
Following Your Procedure
Your doctor will advise you to stay away from things like coffee, tea and other teeth staining foods following your dental bonding. You may also notice increased sensitivity for a short period.
