Dental Bonding – Dentist in Twin Falls, ID is Brightening Smiles
Do you have a cracked, chipped or a discolored tooth that has taken away your confidence in flashing your pearly whites? If so, a cosmetic dental procedure called dental tooth bonding may just be the solution you’ve been waiting for. Dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin that is applied to one or multiple teeth by a dental professional to repair damage teeth or correct a cosmetic issue. Dr. Justin Cress has been applying this cost-effective solution with great success at Cress Dental in Twin Falls, ID to patients in need. If you are just now hearing about this process, here is some information you may find helpful.
Dental Bonding – What Is It?
Dental bonding doesn’t require any form of anesthesia (unless a cavity is being filled) and can be completed within a single visit to your dentist. It’s truly a simple procedure. The process involves your dentist working with you in choosing, first, a proper shade for the resin so that it matches the color of your surrounding teeth. Your dentist will then gently roughen the surface of the tooth or teeth receiving the bonding so that a liquid can then be applied to allow the bonding agent to adhere to the tooth. The composite resin is then adhered over the liquid and then is molded and shaped to the appropriate shape. The resin is then hardened underneath an ultraviolet light.
Who Needs Dental Bonding?
Anybody with a defect or imperfection on a tooth or teeth may be candidates for dental bonding. Since dental bonding can correct dental issues including a decayed, discolored or cracked tooth and can also be used to close small gaps between your teeth. Dental bonding can also increase the size of your tooth in situations where you may have a tooth that is shorter than others and wish for a uniform length. The dental bonding procedure can take between half an hour to an hour but may run longer in some cases.
