Do you want to get that 5-star smile that you’ve always wanted? Cosmetic bonding Phillips could be the answer to your prayers! But before you get some dental work done, you might want to know more about this dental solution that can restore your teeth to their former glory.
Cosmetic bonding involves the application of tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth. In most cases, patients who aren’t interested in getting porcelain veneers use this to fix common dental issues, including:
If you’re only getting one or several teeth fixed, the entire procedure can be completed in a single appointment. It takes an average of 30 minutes to about an hour to fix each tooth.
Are you overdue for a dental cleaning? You’ll be advised to get one before your appointment. But if you’ve got this covered, all you have to do is to head down to your dentist’s office with your teeth brushed and flossed.
Before your dentist prepares the bonding resin, they select a shade that best matches your teeth. Once color is picked, the putty-like resin is molded into shape. No anesthesia is required for surface repairs. But if the affected area is located near a nerve, the dentist may have to apply local anesthesia before drilling out and smoothing down your tooth.
First, the tooth’s surface is roughened before applying a conditioning fluid that helps the resin stick to your pearly whites. Next, the resin is applied to your teeth and is molded into the desired shape. The dentist smooths it down before shining a bright light on the resin to harden it. Once it hardens in just a few seconds, the resin is smoothed out and trimmed to look and feels natural.
