Dental bonding is a procedure where a dentist reconstructs, reshapes, and conceals tooth defects using composite resins, which are the same color as the tooth. People who have chipped their tooth somehow visit Dentist Spring to get this emergency procedure done quickly.
To save your smile, the dentist will proceed to create a replacement part of the tooth, matching the color of the chipped tooth, and make it whole again. The procedure only takes about forty-five minutes so you will be in and out swiftly.
More about Dental Bonding
If your tooth is chipped, decayed, broken, or discolored, the dentist will use dental bonding to rectify the problem. As stated above, the dentist will take composite resin to reconstruct the tooth, making sure the shape, size, and color do not deviate from the actual tooth. For a detailed look at howDentist Spring performs dental bonding, look below:
1. Prepping You Up for the Procedure
If you have a chipped tooth, you will not require any extensive prepping. In most cases, you do not even need a dose of anesthesia. If your tooth is badly damaged, there is fracture near the nerve, or the tooth is sensitive, you will be required to undergo anesthesia. After the reason of why you need dental bonding is established, the dentist will choose a color for the composite resin that best matches the color of your teeth.
2. The Procedure Begins
The dentist will roughen the surface of the tooth and apply phosphoric acid to it. The phosphoric acid will remove the debris and open small bubbles to allow the false teeth to bond to the existing one. The dentist will apply a primer to wet the area and enable the adhesive to flow into the small tubules. After that, the dentist will apply adhesive bonding agent to allow everything to bond securely with each other. At last, the dentist will apply composite resin, blend it, and double-check it to make sure everything is in order.
3. The Final Check
Once the dentist is satisfied with his/her handy work, he/she will put you through another test called the bite test. The dentist will tell you to bite down on something to check if your all your teeth are biting uniformly.
The dental bonding procedure takes up to forty-five minutes, but depending on the extent of your chip or tooth decay, the time can extend to an hour. At Dentist Spring, we will ensure no one will be able to tell your fake teeth from your real one.
