Composite Tooth Bonding

Bonding or resin material is composite material that is formed into a thin covering and used to conceal the tooth and improve its appearance. It can be used to fix chips or cracks, change the shape or color of a tooth or even make crooked teeth look straighter. Unlike Porcelain Veneers which require that impressions be made and the covering be fabricated in a lab, tooth bonding can be performed by a qualified cosmetic dentist like Dr. Cohen in his Beverly Hills office in just one visit.

The Procedure:
The first step in bonding is to make sure that you properly match the material with the color of the existing tooth. Then, a drill is used to roughen the enamel surface of the tooth, so that there is a smooth transition from the existing tooth to the bonding material.Often times you don't even need anesthesia. A conditioning gel is placed on the tooth to "open" the enamel, ensuring a better bond to the tooth. Then a resin adhesive is placed on the tooth, like a very thin film of glue, to help the bonding material adhere to the tooth.The bonding material is then applied to the tooth and shaped and sculpted to the desired form. A high intensity curing light or laser is used to harden the material, and then it is polished to a high finish.

Results
: Very large bonding restorations can break and stain if the individual is not careful with them, but in most cases, tooth bonding will last from 3 to 7 years.
