Enhance and Protect Your Sensational Smile
What is Dental Bonding?
Also referred to as bonded restoration, dental bonding is a painless way to mend damaged teeth. It is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures and is utilized to solve a wide array of commonly encountered tooth problems. Composite resin material (a type of plastic) is joined (bonded) to the existing tooth thus restoring or even improving the form and function of the original. Gone are the days of ugly silver-mercury metal fillings or crowns. The color of our bonding material is chosen to blend perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Dental bonding typically results in a very natural appearance indistinguishable from the real tooth.
How we do it at our Katy, TX Dental Clinic
After an initial consultation with Dr. Dat Pham where we assess oral health, medical history, and current dental problems, we decide (with patient input) if dental bonding is the right procedure for them. If it is and the patient agrees, we proceed with the bonding procedure.
A shade guide is employed to determine which dental bonding resin will match your existing teeth. The tooth is then etched (roughened) to increase the surface area upon which the resin material will be bonded. A conditioning fluid is applied to the tooth surface, the preparation phase for dental bonding is now complete. Now the tooth colored dental bonding resin is applied. Then our Katy Dental expert skillfully shapes the resin to the desired form. The putty like resin is then exposed to an ultra violet light or laser that hardens the material and permanently bonds it to the tooth surface. Finally the dental bonding is polished and treated so that you walk out with a dazzling smile. At Grand Smiles Katy dental clinic, we make certain every patient is completely satisfied with their dental bonding results before they leave our office.
