The Dental Bonding Procedure at Optimum Dentistry
Dr. Santana takes a conservative, customized approach to dental bonding for natural-looking, long-lasting results. Here is an overview of the dental bonding procedure with Dr. Santana:
The first step is meeting with Dr. Santana for a dental exam. He’ll evaluate your smile’s aesthetics and listen to your goals. Together, you’ll decide if teeth bonding is the right treatment option.
Little to no tooth reduction is required for teeth bonding. Dr. Santana may use a conditioning liquid to roughen the surface to help the tooth bonding material adhere.
Composite resin comes in various natural tooth shades. The cosmetic dental bonding material is carefully selected and customized to match the color of your surrounding teeth seamlessly.
Dr. Santana skillfully sculpts the teeth-bonding material into the precise shape and symmetry needed to improve your smile. He meticulously applies the composite resin to the surface of the prepared tooth.
Curing the Composite Resin
A special curing light hardens the tooth-bonding material onto the bonded tooth. Additional layers of composite resin may be applied to build the shape and thickness required.
Finishing and Polishing
Once cured, Dr. Santana smooths and polishes the teeth-bonding material to a natural sheen. He’ll make sure the composite resin creates a comfortable, functional bite.
Review Your Smile
In the end, you’ll get to see your beautiful new smile! Dr. Santana will also provide care instructions to maintain the results. With his meticulous technique, you can expect a customized bonding result that looks and feels natural.
