BONDING

Close the gaps between your teeth!

Bonding is a conservative, simple and well-proven restorative technique that painlessly corrects objectionable spaces and tooth shapes with good predictability with almost no removal of tooth structure. It is the choice restoration to correct:

  • Spaces between teeth
  • Misshapen or irregular teeth
  • Malpositioned or crooked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gum recession- causing root exposure

Technique:

The tooth is cleaned using pumice, a sandy material to remove surface deposits. The surface around the tooth defect is then roughened with a mild acid application to help hold the bonding material. A putty like plastic material is color matched to the natural tooth and placed on the roughened tooth surface and allowed to cure with a special bonding light. The restoration is then contoured, finished and polished to yield an almost undetectable and natural looking restoration.

Alternatives to Bonding Teeth
