Tooth Bonding

Tooth Bonding

Here at Bluebonnet Dental Care - Millbrook, your dentist is specially trained in tooth bonding techniques.

Why Choose Bonding?

Benefiting both your oral health and cosmetic appearance, bonding can be used for several purposes, including:

  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Fixing gaps in teeth
  • Concealing discoloration

During the bonding process, your tooth color is matched. Then the bond is sculpted freehand and polished to a beautiful, natural appearance.

The Bonding Procedure

The bonding process can be completed in one visit, usually taking between 30-60 minutes to complete.

  • Initially, a shade of composite resin is matched to the shade of your teeth as closely as possible.
  • Then, an adhering liquid is applied to help the bonding material hold to your teeth.
  • Once the resin is adhered, it is smoothed to a desired shape and hardened with a high-intensity light.
  • Once hardened, some final touchups are made and the area is polished to resemble the rest of your teeth.
