What is Bonding?
Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes:
- to correct a tooth gap
- to cover discolorations
- to repair chipped/cracked teeth.
Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office. Tooth bonding is dependent upon the artistic ability of the dentist, since the work is done "freehand" without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be colour-matched, sculpted, and polished to produce a beautiful and natural-looking result. Dr. Kurtz is trained in tooth bonding techniques and has years of experience in cosmetic dentistry.
The Bonding Procedure
Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office.
- First Dr. Kurtz selects a shade of composite resin that is as close as possible to the shade of your teeth.
- Then, he applies a liquid that helps the bonding material adhere to the teeth.
- The composite resin is applied to the teeth, smoothed into the desired shape, and hardened with a high intensity light.
- After the resin has hardened, Dr. Kurtz makes a few final touches and polishes the teeth being treated until they resemble the other teeth.
Dr. Kurtz can repair multiple teeth during a single visit.
