Tooth Bonding Louisville, CO

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Tooth bonding can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes, addressing minor aesthetic concerns and tooth damage. Similar to a dental filling procedure, tooth bonding is typically an easy process completed during one visit with Dr. Hughes at Boulder Valley Dental Center in Louisville, CO.

Dr. Hughes recommends tooth bonding for many reasons:

Although tooth bonding can last for 10 years or more with proper dental care, it is not considered a permanent restoration. For this reason, tooth bonding is often the perfect solution for younger patients or adult patients who are not yet ready for placing dental veneers, a more permanent treatment option.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding process is similar to that of a dental filling. Dr. Hughes will numb the area to be treated to ensure you are completely comfortable. The tooth surface will be prepared by slightly etching it to create a varied surface that will hold the composite resin. Dr. Hughes will sculpt the color matched material into the desired shape for a natural looking result.

The composite material is cured for a stable result using a special light and then polished to blend with the natural luster of your natural teeth. You can improve the longevity of your results with good daily oral hygiene and routine dental care where we can monitor for any signs of damage.
