Dental bonding in Fresno, CA is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure that can significantly enhance your smile's appearance. This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth and then hardening it with a special light, effectively bonding the material to the tooth to improve your smile. Dental bonding is an excellent option for those who have chipped, cracked, discolored, or misshapen teeth and are looking for a quick and affordable solution.
Choosing Fresno dental bonding for your cosmetic dental needs comes with numerous advantages. It's a cost-effective alternative to veneers and crowns, offering comparable results at a fraction of the cost. Dental bonding can be completed in a single visit to Dr. Christopher Bauer's office at Bauer Dental Company, eliminating the need for multiple appointments. Plus, it's a non-invasive procedure that requires minimal tooth enamel removal, preserving the health and integrity of your natural teeth.
During the initial phase of the dental bonding process, Dr. Bauer will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that closely matches the color of your natural teeth. This ensures that the final result looks as natural as possible.
Next, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape.
The final step of the dental bonding process involves hardening the resin. Dr. Bauer will use a special light or laser to harden the material. Once the bonding material is hard, he will trim, shape, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.
