What Is Direct Bonding?
You may have heard direct bonding being referred to as cosmetic bonding or dental bonding. Whatever you call it, this treatment involves using a pliable material called composite resin to fix minor aesthetic flaws in your teeth. The resin can be sculpted to correct the following imperfections:
- Discoloration or stains
- Cracked or chipped enamel
- Misshapen teeth
- Stubby or shorter than average teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
This biocompatible substance can be personalized to match the exact shade of your tooth enamel, creating results that look perfectly natural.
How Direct Bonding Works
Direct bonding is a simple, conservative procedure that won’t require your tooth to be permanently altered. First, you’ll need to attend a consultation with either Dr. Drennan or Dr. Morrison to find out whether bonding is the ideal way for you to meet your smile goals. If it is, then we’ll then develop a personalized treatment plan. Depending on the number of teeth you’re improving, the process can take a single appointment that often lasts only 30 to 60 minutes.
Your dentist in Fort Worth will begin by cleaning your tooth and applying a weak acid to open the pores in the enamel, which promotes a secure bond with the composite resin. We’ll rinse your tooth before applying the custom-shaded resin to your tooth bit by bit. The material is molded into the ideal shape before we harden it within a few seconds with an ultraviolet light. All that’s left to do is give your tooth a final polish and make sure you’re happy with the results!
