If you require minor dental repairs, bonding can be an economical procedure. This is especially the case for patients affected by a stained or chipped tooth. Dr. Lee and his dental bonding treatments in Mission Viejo can create a fully reformed smile without impacting your budget.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of naturally colored restorations. These are polished and shaped to emulate the natural appearance of your teeth. The material itself is comfortably bonded to the tooth, broken or chipped teeth are remedied as the restoration fills in small gaps.
During the process, a gentle phosphoric acid will be applied on the surface of your teeth. This prepares the surface to increase the effectiveness of the bonding agent. The process in minimally invasive and does not cause discomfort. The bonding material is placed on the tooth’s surface and is shaped. A special light will be concentrated on the area to harden the material. Once the bonding process has concluded, the restoration is polished and smoothed.
Dental bonding can be completed in a single office visit and offer significant cost advantages for the patient. There are a number of dental insurance plans that can cover the entire cost of a bonding treatment.
