About Dental Bonding
With dental bonding, our Layton dentist uses composite resin to make improvements on the surface of the teeth. This material adds strength to weakened teeth. It bonds directly to the tooth’s surface being treated. After bonding is complete, the material is invisible to the eye. The bonding process takes less time than other procedures such as veneers whose goal is similar. It also doesn’t require multiple visits to our dental office. Dr. Christensen can repair your teeth and smile in just one visit.
Dental bonding can be used to repair broken teeth, chips or other damage overall on patients of all ages. Before the bonding procedure begins, the surface of the teeth is cleaned and etched with a gel that opens the pores allowing the bonding material to work better. This gel is rinsed off before the composite resin material is painted on in thin layers. A curing light is used to harden the material. The tooth or teeth being treated are polished after bonding is complete.
When it comes to caring for your teeth, bonded teeth should be brushed and flossed just as often. Dr. Christensen recommends at least twice a day brushing with fluoride toothpaste and daily flossing. These teeth will look natural and stay strong for years to come with the proper oral hygiene routine.
