Dental Bonding In Irving, Texas

Dental bonding, also known as composite bonding, has been a popular dental treatment for several years. It is an excellent way to fix discoloured, cracked, or chipped teeth, as well as replace silver amalgam fillings. You can also use bonding to close gaps and reshape misaligned teeth, resulting in a straighter and more uniform smile.

 Bonding is considered the most conservative cosmetic dentistry option since it requires minimal alteration to the original tooth enamel. Furthermore, if none of the tooth enamel is removed, it is reversible. Bonding composites to teeth is a popular option because the material closely matches the shade of your natural teeth, and the results are visible immediately.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

  • Repair decayed teeth
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Whiten discolored or stained teeth
  • Fill in the spaces or gaps between teeth
  • Reshape or lengthen teeth 
  • Fill cavities 
  • Protect exposed tooth roots  

Dental Bonding Procedure:

  • A local anaesthetic will be given to numb the tooth and the surrounding tissue – not  all bonding procedures require an injection
  • The tooth will be isolated from the rest of your teeth using a ‘rubber dam’ which is a thin sheet of rubber placed over your mouth. It is used to keep the tooth dry as saliva can compromise the bond of the composite.
  • The tooth will be thoroughly cleaned. All decay, food debris or tartar will be removed.
  • The tooth is prepared using a phosphoric-acid-based gel; this roughens the surface of the tooth. A bonding agent (glue) is applied to the roughened surface and set using a concentrated beam of ultraviolet light. The composite is then applied in layers and set at each stage using the ultraviolet light. The composite will be continued to be applied in layers until the desired shape is achieved.

The last stage is to polish the restoration to achieve the final shape and smooth finish.
