Cosmetic Dental Bonding in Twin Falls Idaho
If you chip a tooth or want to fix cracked, discolored teeth, tooth bonding might solve your problems. At Cress Dental Family Dentistry in Twin Falls, ID, we provide comprehensive dentistry, including cosmetic dental bonding. Find out what tooth bonding is and what to expect during and after the procedure.
Tooth bonding involves the application of resin to repair imperfections in the tooth. This affordable cosmetic procedure often involves only one visit, and it improves the appearance and functionality of your teeth.
Dr. Justin Cress uses tooth bonding to correct the following dental issues:
- Cover chips and cracks
- Large spaces between teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Protect the tooth root (as a substitute for metallic or amalgam fillings)
What to Expect
During your visit, Dr. Cress uses a shade guide to match the resin to the rest of your teeth. He prepares the surface by roughing it so that the resin will bond to the tooth. An adhesive applied to the tooth helps seal the bond.
Next, he applies the pliable resin to the tooth and forms it into the appropriate shape. Finally, a laser or UV light hardens the resins and helps it cure. It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete one or more teeth in a single session. If you have multiple teeth to treat, plan on coming back for subsequent visits.
