Dental Bonding in Woodlawn
Dental bonding is a simple, painless, and affordable procedure that has many uses, including:
- Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Reshaping teeth
- Covering badly stained teeth
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin. Our Woodlawn dentists prepare the tooth for bonding by placing a mild chemical on it to roughen the surface. Using a shade guide, our dentists select a shade that closely matches your tooth and then mix and tints the resin. The resin is applied in thin layers and then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. Our dentists then shape and polish the resin to smooth it and give it a natural look.
The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You can even get several teeth bonded in one visit. No special techniques are needed to care for bonded teeth – just good oral hygiene.
