Dr. Eric Ulve and Dr. Jessica Pasono at Green Bay Family Dental are well versed in the best ways to restore broken or decayed teeth in their patients. Their restorations help to improve the appearance and most importantly, the function of teeth. One of the best treatment methods to achieve this is cosmetic bonding. After a thorough examination with one of the doctors, they will be able to determine whether or not this procedure is optimal for your particular oral health situation.
Understanding Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding uses a tooth-color material that hides any imperfections in a tooth such as spacing problems, discoloration, chips or cracks. This treatment method can even replace missing tooth structure on cracked teeth, which adds strength. It bonds to the surface of existing tooth enamel and comes in a variety of shades to match any tooth.
Dr. Ulve and Dr. Pasono at Green Bay Family Dental will apply the material to the teeth in layers to create a strong surface that solves that particular patient’s problem. It’s important to understand that cosmetic bonding isn’t as long-lasting as veneers, but it is a faster procedure that doesn’t require a dental lab. The process takes less than just one hour.
During the procedure, the surface of the tooth is cleansed to allow the material to bond the best. An acidic gel is used and rinsed off before the resin is painted in layers onto the teeth. A curing light is used to harden the material and layers are continued until the desired thickness is achieved. Lastly, the tooth is shaped to match other teeth and then polished.
