When is dental bonding used? Dental bonding is an option that can be considered:
Dr. Weaver carefully selects a composite resin (dental bonding material) that matches the natural shade of your teeth. He then roughens the existing tooth so the resin can adhere properly. Next, the composite resin is carefully applied to the tooth, shaped, and smoothed to achieve the desired look. It is then quickly hardened using a high-intensity light. Lastly, the bonded tooth is buffed and polished, so it has the same appearance as the surrounding teeth. People are unlikely to detect any difference in the shade, it’s that good.
Tooth bonding offers several benefits for patients. It is quick, affordable, relatively painless, and long lasting. At Dream Dental, we’ve treated patients from all over the Nashville area – including Goodlettsville, White House, Madison, Hendersonville, Gallatin and beyond!
