Dentist in Charleston, SC - Lowcountry Family & Cosmetic Dentistry - Bonding treatment information
Bonding is a quick, painless in-office procedure
to repair cracks, chips, gaps between teeth or cover stained teeth to enhance
your smile. Bonding can often be done without anesthesia if there is no
decay or pulp exposure. The bonding material is developed in many shades
allowing the dentist to accurately match the shade of your natural teeth.
The composite resin forms a durable, stain resistant surface that is later
smoothed and polished to give it a natural appearance and feel.
Bonding can be used to:
- Protect exposed roots of teeth
- Repair cracks, unevenness, chips
- Close spaces between your front teeth
- Reshape crooked or misshapen teeth
- Whiten stained teeth
- Stabilize loose teeth
Composite resin is applied and sculpted to obtain the most esthetic form.
The resin is then hardened and polished to a natural finish.
