Dental bonding is a versatile procedure that our dentist uses to restore teeth after damage has occurred and enhance teeth for cosmetic purposes. Involving the placement of dental resin on teeth and hardening it, dental bonding not only permanently conceals flaws of color and structure but also guards teeth against erosion by bacteria and acids. Because the resin is tinted to match the natural color of teeth and is easily applied, this procedure from our East Los Angeles dental bonding expert is a convenient way for patients to support their oral health and appearance.
A wide range of oral health and cosmetic issues can be addressed through dental bonding. For example, our expert in dental bonding in East Los Angeles can use the resin to restore decayed teeth without altering their appearance. Teeth that have been cracked or broken can be repaired to their former looks through the application of bonding. When teeth are heavily stained or discolored internally, making teeth whitening ineffective, dental bonding can present a viable solution. The shape, size, and spacing of teeth can be addressed with bonding, and teeth at risk of decay by receded gums can be protected through this procedure.

Dental bonding is minimally invasive, making the procedure fast and easy in most cases. Unless bonding is being performed for repair of a cavity, local anesthesia is likely to be unnecessary. The tooth to be treated is first roughened and conditioned so that the bonding material will stick. After applying the appropriately tinted resin to the tooth, our East Los Angeles dental bonding expert shapes the resin to match the surrounding tooth structure. Finally, our dentist cures the resin with a special light and finishes by trimming and polishing the bonded area.
After having teeth bonded by our cosmetic dentist in East Los Angeles, patients can help keep their results in good shape for longer by brushing and flossing every day, visiting our dentist regularly for check-ups, and avoiding excessively hard or pigmented foods and drinks.
