Composite bonding is one of the quickest and easiest ways to make major improvements to a person’s smile. The treatment consists of using tooth-colored resin to make adjustments to teeth and to repair many types of minor dental damage. At Oasis Family Dental, we take great pride in providing patients with composite bonding procedures that look and feel remarkably natural.
There are several applications for composite bonding in dentistry, including:
- Filling cavities
- Fixing minor damage
- Brightening teeth
- Reducing gaps
- Spacing adjustments
- Evening tooth heights
- Correcting misshapen teeth
- Protecting tooth roots
Composite bonding procedures can be completed in just one visit to Oasis Family Dental. When providing this type of treatment, we start by carefully cleaning any tooth that is designated for bonding. Next, our experts will examine the patient’s teeth in order to determine the exact shade of resin that will be used. If any decay or deterioration is present, it will be removed prior to applying the bonding.
Once the teeth are ready, composite material will be applied in multiple layers. Each layer will be individually hardened, and a new layer will be added until the tooth reaches the desired level of thickness. The bonding material will be allowed to harden completely, and the teeth will be buffed and polished in order to achieve a more natural and pleasing appearance. With proper care, the bonding should last for about ten years before requiring replacement.
