Expectation From Tooth Bonding
The tooth bonding procedure is absolutely painless and completed in one visit taking for about 30 minutes to one hour. First, the teeth that will go for the bonding are cleaned so that they are plaque-free and clean. Then the tooth surface is prepared by etching away a small portion that will open up tiny pores on the tooth’s surface. This makes the tooth to easily bond with the composite resin. The composite resin is thinly painted filling the tiny holes creating a strong bond.After carefully applying and sculpting the composite resin and creating a natural and comfortable new tooth surface the dentist moves on to the final step. The final step involves curing the resin with a special hand-held curing light and polish the new surface for a natural luster.
Taking care of the bonded tooth
Brushing and flossing should be done on a regular basis. professional cleaning should be done at least twice a year. composite resins can easily be stained so to avoid this smoking should not be done. Avoiding wine, tea and coffee is desirable too. Once the bonded teeth get stained it is not possible to whiten it like natural teeth. The longevity of the bonded teeth can be 3 to 10 years depending on the maintenance and care.
