Dental bonding is a service we offer at Turlock Dental Care for those who have a stubborn, unattractive tooth that distracts from the beauty of their smile.
Dental bonding in Turlock, California, is the process of applying a tooth-colored material to your tooth to improve its appearance. It also has the ability to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Make teeth look longer
- Protect a portion of the tooth’s root after it has been exposed
- Close gaps between teeth
- Restore chipped teeth
- Repair broken teeth
- Change the shape of teeth
This is a process that can give you the smile you have always wanted, and it begins with Dr. Robert A. McCulla choosing a color of material that closely matches the natural color of your teeth. Your dentist will then roughen the surface of the tooth and will apply a conditioning liquid to it, which will help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. Next, he will apply the tooth-colored resin material to the tooth, mold it, and smooth it into the desired shape. Your dentist will then harden the material with an ultraviolet light. After the material is hardened, he will trim and shape it until it meets your preferred appearance. This entire process can take about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth and it will end with your perfect smile.
This is the easiest and least-expensive procedure of all cosmetic options, and it is an easy and effective way of getting your dream smile. If you are interested in this process, we invite you to call our office today and schedule an appointment!
