Bonding Veneers in Plano TX
Dental Bonding is a restoratve procedure in which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to a tooth and cured with ultraviolet light. It is used to fix gaps,chips, discolorations and other esthetic concerns. Bonding is faster, less invasive and more economical than veneers or crowns, and can thus be a good option to make small cosmetic improvements to your teeth. Unlike veneers and crowns, bonding can be done in one office visit since nothing has to be made by a dental laboratory. Additionally, the procedure typically requires removing less tooth enamel compared to veneers and crowns.
How its done
The bonding procedure typically requires between 30 to 60 minutes to complete for each tooth. First the dentist determines exactly what color shade your teeth are to select a resin that will blend naturally. Once this is done, the dentist will prepare the tooth so that the bonding material will best adhere. This involves roughening the surface of the affected tooth and applying a gel deep cleaner and bonding agent. Once this is complete, the dentist will apply the resin to the tooth, hand sculpt the material and cure it in place using an ultraviolet light. Finally, the dentist will apply the finishing touches by contouring and polishing the resin for a beautiful esthetics and function.
