Tooth color bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored resin to damaged or imperfect sections of your teeth or mouth. To complete the application, your dentist will bond the material to one tooth or several of your teeth. Color bonding gives Dr. Abaian and Dr. Hanookai a quick way to restore the natural look of your smile.
What Does Teeth Color Bonding Treat?
With teeth color bonding, your cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles can fix unsightly gaps between your teeth and change their shape. He or she can also use the technique to correct teeth that are chipped or cracked. Tooth color bonding is able to lengthen a tooth and repair ones that are decayed. Some dentists use bonding as a cosmetic substitute to traditional amalgam fillings. In some cases, dentists apply the material to a tooth's root for protection after it becomes exposed due to receding gums.
How Teeth Bonding Works
Tooth color bonding does not require preparation, and in most cases, your dentist can even avoid using a numbing agent. To select the resin color, Dr. Abaian and Dr. Hanookai will match the material's hue to the natural color of your teeth. During the bonding process, your dentist will roughen the section around the tooth that requires restoration. He or she will also etch it with a bonding gel. To maintain or enhance the appearance of your smile, the dentist will use a sculpting method to apply the resin.
Direct composite bonding and adhesive bonding are the two main forms of the treatment. With direct composite bonding, one of our Gage dentists will use tooth-colored composites to repair damaged teeth or close gaps between them. If you have teeth with worn down edges, then your dentist may use direct composite bonding to build them back up.
Your dentist can also apply composite materials directly to your teeth to sculpt the exterior of the ones that show the most prominently when you talk or smile. With composite materials, Dr. Abaian can give you a less invasive smile makeover.
Adhesive bonding involves attaching a dental restoration directly to a tooth. This technique is mainly used for porcelain veneers, esthetic crowns and bridges in addition to inlays and onlays.
