Naples Cosmetic Bonding
Our Naples dentists may also suggest bonding as an option for patients with damaged, discolored or gapped teeth. Bonding involves adhering composite resin material — matched to the color of the tooth — to the front of the tooth. This may be done to repair damage caused by decay, to alter a tooth’s alignment, to close gaps between teeth or for cosmetic purposes.
To initiate the bonding procedure, your Naples area dentist will rub and roughen the tooth’s surface to help it to hold the bond. A gel is then applied to micro etch the tooth’s surface, and a primer or bonding agent is added to help the material adhere. Finally, Dr. Rashid will apply and bond a tooth-colored restoration to the tooth’s surface.The composite resin material is then shaped and polished to create a lustrous finish. The bonding procedure can usually be completed in one dental appointment.
This effective dental treatment allows your Naples dentist to effectively repair or restore the shape and feel of your teeth, especially in cases where your teeth are chipped, broken, cracked or stained or if there are uneven or large gaps between your teeth.
