Want to get rid of the bumps on your teeth that cause you daily discomfort ?
Bonding is an aesthetic procedure that is an alternative to veneering.
Non-invasive and without a recovery period, bonding is your solution when you want a perfect smile in a short time.
During the procedure, your dentist will apply a layer-by-layer highly aesthetic composite material that permanently binds to your natural teeth.
The procedure does not require anesthesia and can be applied to any group of teeth - both anterior (frontal) and posterior (distal).
Step1: Before proceeding with the procedure, your dentist will take fingerprints from your mouth and send them to the dental laboratory. This is to analyze and prepare a wax prototype showing what your teeth would look like (wax-up) after the procedure.
Step 2: On the second visit with a silicone key, your dentist will carry this wax prototype into your mouth (mock-up) to see what you would look like.
Step 3: When the patient likes his new look (shape, mass size), the bonding procedure is started.The dentist will use a finishing drill to smooth and polish the tooth surface that needs a bonding procedure. This will help the photopolymer material to adhere better and more permanently, after which, using the silicone wrench, the layer-by-layer application of the aesthetic photopolymer and the shaping of the new tooth begins.
In which cases is the bonding procedure recommended?
- in case you have diastema and tremors and want to close the distance between the teeth, but do not want to wear braces;
- you want to change the shape and size of your teeth;
- you have dark spots that you want to cover up;
- you have an initial stage of abrasion (erasing the cutting edges of the teeth);
- sensitive dentin.
How should we take care of our teeth after a bonding procedure?
There is nothing specific you need to do. You need to follow good oral hygiene and follow your regular check-ups at the dentist (at least 2 a year). During the examinations, the dentist will take care of the good aesthetic value of your teeth.
