We use only Natural Biomimetic materials to give the look of natural, healthy teeth. We offer both simple and complex fillings to restore teeth that are damaged or decayed.
What is the dental bonding material made of?
The dental bonding material is a composite material that hardens and fuses to the tooth when a special light shines on it. Once in place, the bonding material is shaped to correct the specific problem at hand, colored to match your natural teeth, and polished until it’s smooth.
What is the dental bonding process?
Step One: application of an etching solution to the tooth or teeth that will be receiving the bonding material; this gently roughens the surface of the tooth for a stronger bond between the tooth and the composite material.
Step Two: placement of a thin layer of the bonding resin on the surface of your tooth and seals it in place using a special light. Several layers of resin may be added and hardened in turn. Each layer takes only a few minutes to harden.
Step Three: sculpting of the bonding material to the desired shape and colors it to match the shade of your natural teeth. Finally, the bonding material is polished until it is entirely smooth.
The dental bonding procedure takes one to two hours.
What are the different kinds of dental bonding available?
There are two main kinds of dental bonding:
- Simple fillings like the ones described above that can be done in a single appointment
- Complex fillings ( onlays and inlays) that require at least two appointments and the placement of a temporary filling while the custom-shaped and -colored filling is made in a lab.
Although they take longer, custom-made porcelain fillings (onlays and inlays) are more natural-looking, stain-resistant and durable than ordinary bonded fillings.
