One of the most straightforward procedures Dr. Reeve Abraben can perform at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA is a simple cosmetic bond. With a cosmetic bond, our dentist will apply a small bit of composite material to repair very minor smile defects. Dental bonding is used for all of the following:
- Repairing chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth
- Improving the appearance of discolored teeth
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Changing the shape of teeth
As stated before, this procedure uses a composite resin that will bond to teeth and repair small imperfections. Most dental bonding at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA is used for aesthetic purposes. If there is a small gap in your smile that you would like to close or a chip you would like to repair, our dentist can quickly and easily perform a dental bond to fix these concerns.
Once our dentist has developed a plan to address your concerns, Dr. Reeve Abraben will lightly buff the surface of the tooth so that the composite will adhere more securely. The dentist will then mold the material until the desired appearance is achieved. After curing the bond with an ultraviolet light, Dr. Reeve Abraben will again shape, smooth, and polish the material until it matches the rest of your smile. The entire process can usually be completed in less than an hour, but it may take longer if more than one tooth is being adjusted.
