Do you have a chipped, fractured, discolored, or decaying tooth? One of the best cosmetic treatments you can get is a dental bonding to repair it! This easy procedure repairs your damaged tooth by simply placing tooth-colored composite resin in the needed area. It’s not only of the simplest, but it’s also one of the cheapest methods to restore your tooth’s appearance and protect it from further damage.
Dr. Eliot Tokowitz and our dental team here in Chicago, Illinois, want to help you get the look and functionality of your teeth without any future damage to occur. The process begins with you and your dentist determining the best course of treatment. Your dentist will then use a shade guide to pick the right color matching the rest of your smile. They will then slightly etch the surface to create a better bonding surface, and then cover it with a conditioning liquid.
After the tooth is prepared, the selected color of composite resin will be placed, molded, smoothed to create the desired shape. An ultraviolet light/laser is then used to harden the material. Your dentist will then trim and shape it after it hardens, giving it a final polish. The process lasts as long as it takes for you to run to the grocery store and back.
