Tooth Bonding in Greenville
Fix a cracked or chipped tooth with tooth bonding at our Greenville cosmetic dental practice
Unfortunately, accidents happen. You may trip and fall, collide with a player while playing sports, or eat a hard food, such as corn or an apple, that may damage a tooth. Tooth bonding at our Greenville area cosmetic dentistry office may be the answer to repair cracked or chipped teeth.
Tooth bonding uses a special composite resin to rebuild the part of the tooth that is damaged. Dental resin is very durable, like your teeth’s own enamel, and are matched to your teeth so that they are virtually undetectable.
Tooth Bonding Process
Tooth bonding is simple and involves little to no pain or discomfort. A dental resin is selected that most closely resembles the natural color of the tooth to be treated. The tooth is prepared for the tooth bonding material by filing the tooth to be bit rough – this helps the resin adhere to the tooth. The composite resin is then applied, smoothed down and shaped to seamlessly blend with the existing tooth. A special high-intensity light is then used to dry and harden the composite bonding material.
