A chip in your tooth, discoloration, or misalignment can make you want to hide your smile. This is why Dr. Robert B. Ruyak, DMD offers a quick, affordable, and natural-looking fix here in our Bethlehem, PA office; dental bonding.
Dental bonding is the process of using tooth-colored composite resin to fill in cracks, gaps, or reshape misshapen teeth. It can also be used for long-lasting whitening. The composite resin is also used to fill in cavities, so with good care, it can remain in great shape for over ten years.
To apply dental bonding, Dr. Ruyak will first lightly etch the surface of your teeth. The etching creates a strong bond between the resin and the tooth. The resin color is matched to the shade of your natural teeth, so it looks as natural as can be. For long-lasting whitening, the resin will be chosen in a brighter shade. Your dentist will smooth the resin over your tooth and shape it to make the desired improvement. It is then allowed to harden. Afterwards, it is polished to shine like natural teeth.
If you are tired of hiding your smile or just want to improve the aesthetics, dental bonding is the popular option that just may work for you. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Robert B.
