Tooth Bonding What to Expect
The tooth bonding procedure is similar to a dental filling and can typically be completed in just one visit to our Greeley, CO dentist office.
Your Marr Family dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area to be treated. The tooth being treated will be prepared by removing a very thin layer of enamel to make room for the bonding material. After the tooth is prepared, the bonding material will be color matched to your adjacent teeth and molded to the desired shape. Patients will be able to give Dr. Marr feedback as he makes adjustments. The bonding material will not be fixed until the patient and doctor are completely satisfied.
Once the bonding has been formed and color matched for an aesthetically pleasing result, Dr. Marr will cure the material using a special light for a lasting bond. The special light activates the bonding and hardens the material. Then the tooth will be polished to a natural luster for a beautiful and confident smile.
