Dental Bonding Boulder, CO
Thanks to the newer generations of tooth colored filling materials, and the bonding agents that make them stick to the tooth, we can often restore a chipped tooth in a single appointment, layering different colors to mimic the natural tooth.
Problem – Chipped or cracked teeth
Solution – Tooth bonding
What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged.
How does Dental Bonding work?
The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.
Considerations for Dental Bonding
The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip, or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before the need for repair.
