About Tooth Bonding

Dental bonding or tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that is going to improve your smile for sure. Dental composite consists of silicon dioxide or quartz, which is bound with a synthetic resin. The best part about tooth bonding is that it matches the natural color of your teeth. Dr. LaFrom, one of the most popular dentists in Cupertino, says that tooth bonding is a very successful way to close tooth gaps or to get rid of spots, chips, and discolorations. It is also used to fill cavities and repair broken front teeth. 

In case of Dental bonding or tooth bonding, the first thing that the dentist would do is to select the composite resin that matches the natural color of your teeth. Then, the area of the tooth that is to be repaired is roughened. After that, the dentist applies the composite resin to the teeth. It has a paste like consistency and can be shaped and smoothed to achieve the perfect look. A high intensity light is used to harden it and then it is polished so that there is no distinction with the surrounding teeth. 

Dr. LaFrom says that the composite resin used in tooth bonding expands and contracts along with the natural teeth, which in turn avoids the appearance of cracks. If your repairing need is small, it might be accomplished in a single sitting. However, larger corrections might require two sittings. You should check the accreditations of the cosmetic dentist before approaching him or her for tooth bonding.
