The Steps in Dental-Bonding Treatment

Posted .

Dental bonding in Centennial, Colorado, is an effective treatment that can repair decayed, chipped, and cracked teeth. It can also improve the appearance of a tooth and can protect a portion of a tooth’s root if it has been exposed.

If you are about to use dental bonding for one of the mentioned reasons, our Peak Dental Care team is more than happy to help you prepare for your appointment! You can expect the following steps when you come in to meet with Dr. Scott Lindsay:

Step 1: To begin treatment, your dentist will pick the type of bonding material that will match perfectly with your smile. Then, he will roughen the surface of the tooth and will apply a conditioning liquid to that surface. This will help the material adhere to the tooth.

Step 2: Next, the tooth-colored putty will be applied to the tooth. Your dentist will then mold and smooth it to the desired shape.

Step 3: Finally, your dentist will harden the material with an ultraviolet light. Once it’s hardened, he will trim and shape it to make it look completely natural.
