Cosmetic dentistry is used in a number of situations. From people who simply want to change the way their smile looks, to those who need their teeth restored so they’ll function as they used to, the applications are endless.
One of the most effective methods of restoring broken teeth is dental bonding.
What is it?
Dental bonding is the process of Dr. Gary H Morikawa using a pliable resin applied to your teeth that he shapes to match the chip, fracture, or crack that’s made your tooth look or function in a lesser fashion.
How does it work?
Your tooth is first prepared for the resin – it has to be “roughed up” a bit for the best seal of the resin to your tooth – then the resin is molded into place. Once it’s where it looks natural, it’s hardened using UV light. Then it’s polished to match the color of your teeth.
Do they last?
Dental bondings will last as long as you’re willing to take care of them in the same fashion you take care of your natural teeth.
