Dental bonding provides a tooth-colored resin that’s bonded to a tooth and cured with an ultraviolet light to create small, but notable improvements on your teeth. This has similar appearance improvements as dental veneers, but it’s less expensive and can be completed in one visit to your Lincoln CA dentist. It’s important to note that the bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers would and requires small cosmetic touch-ups often.
How It’s Done
Dr. Nolan typically requires between 30-60 minutes to complete the bonding to each tooth. We make sure that we choose the correct shading color of your teeth so it’ll look natural against the rest of your smile and blend in seamlessly. When this is completed, we’ll prepare the tooth in order to make the bonding easier! This requires us to roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a liquid conditioner so the resin will adhere to the tooth. After it is applied and cured in place with the ultraviolet light, Dr. Nolan will apply the finishing touches by properly polishing and shaping the resin to look brand new and healthy!
