Are your teeth chipped, worn, or stained? Do you wish to restore the beauty of your smile? Dr. Kenneth Schweizer may recommend dental bonding in Sarasota, Florida. Dental bonding is the process by which our dentist applies a tooth-colored material to your teeth, where it bonds to your tooth structure. Our dentist may perform dental bonding to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Improve the shade of stained teeth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Improve the length of teeth
- Improve the shape of teeth
- Protect tooth roots that are exposed
To perform dental bonding, our dentist will first use a shade guide to choose a shade of composite resin that will match that of your tooth. A shade can also be selected that can lighten the appearance of your tooth. The tooth will be etched and a conditioning liquid is applied so ideal bonding can be reached. Our dentist will then apply, mold, and smooth the material. A special light is used to harden the material. Our dentist will then trim and shape the material and polish it to match the sheen of your natural teeth.
We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dental bonding and to schedule your next visit.
