One of the most versatile methods for repairing or refining a smile is tooth bonding. If you’ve had a tooth-colored filling, or any short cosmetic procedure, then you’ve likely experienced dental bonding
Dental bonding in Modesto may seem like an easy process. But it requires advanced training, technical skill and artful technique to create a bonded surface that is imperceptible from your natural tooth.
Dental bonding is nothing short of amazing in how it can be used:
- Fill cavities with non-metal, tooth-colored restorations
- Refine the shape of a tooth or close minor spaces between teeth
- Lengthen a tooth that is shorter than the rest of your teeth
- Cover a badly stained tooth
- Repair a broken or chipped tooth
At Vintage Dental, Dr. Rick Rodig will prepare a moldable resin, custom-colored to the rest of your teeth. The resin is artfully sculpted onto the tooth, with careful attention to strength and symmetry.
The restoration is then hardened using a special light, after which it’s refined and polished. Many patients are skeptical the first time they experience dental bonding. Until they look in the mirror! They can’t believe they’re looking at the same tooth.
