Do you have discoloration, a stain, or other small flaws on your tooth? Dental bonding may be the answer to improve the appearance of your smile! This is a simple, cosmetic treatment to restore the look of your teeth while preserving the natural tooth. Dr. Steven Sachs and our dental professionals want to give you your best smile yet with dental bonding and the assurance your smile will last for years to come.
As one of the easiest and least expensive dental procedures, it’s easy to see why dentists are happy when they can use this procedure. The first step is scheduling a consultation with your dentist to determine which treatment path is best. Your dentist will then choose a shade that matches your tooth’s color scheme. This will be used to select the correct composite resin color.
Your dentist prepares the tooth by roughening the surface of the tooth, and coat it lightly with a conditioning liquid to help the bonding material attach. Tooth-colored resin will then be placed and shaped to the shape of your tooth. It is then hardened with a special ultraviolet light for about a minute. After the bonding material has been solidified, your dentist will trim any excess and polish the tooth.
A follow-up appointment may be made to ensure the tooth’s bonding is solid and comfortable in your mouth. Sachs Family Dental strives to provide the best care and look for your smile, so give our dental office in Orem, Utah, a call at 801-225-4701.
