What Conditions Can Tooth Bonding Treat?
Tooth bonding can be used to address numerous dental issues, including:
- Minor chips, cracks or damage to teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Tooth discoloration
How Does Tooth Bonding Work?
Tooth bonding is a fast, noninvasive treatment that is usually done in just one visit. As an additive procedure much like regular tooth fillings, tooth bonding makes use of a composite resin material. This material is custom designed to look like the natural teeth surrounding it. Dr. Hassan will apply it directly to the area being treated and then molded in place. Once the proper shape is achieved, he can use a special light to activate a hardening agent in the bonding material. As a final step, your bonded tooth will be polished so that it reflects light and shines just like a natural tooth.
Practicing good dental hygiene and making routine visits to Manassas Smiles will help your bonded tooth last for a long time. However, it may eventually need some maintenance in the future. Bonding can also be reversed if you ever decide to have dental veneers applied instead.
