It is a relatively simple procedure that can be used to improve minor cosmetic problems. A colored resin is applied and shaped on the tooth resulting in a change in the tooth’s appearance.
Step1: Your dentist will select a resin color most similar to your current teeth.
Step 2: An adhesive bonding material is applied to the tooth. The special colored resin is then shaped by the dentist on the bonding material. Once the resin had been molded into the new shape on your tooth a laser is used to harden the resin. Once the resin has been hardened the dentist does a final polish on the tooth to ensure a more natural look.
Obviously you are going to continue brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing, and scheduling regular dental checkups with Brighton Family Dental every 6 months. In addition to that, don’t chew on fingernails, pens, etc. If you notice a change in the bonded tooth please call us to schedule a follow up appointment immediately.
