Dental Bonding Oxnard, CA

Dentist and assistant performing a dental bonding procedure on a female patient  at Artistic Smiles in Agoura Hills, CADental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that helps repair minor cracks, chips, and gaps between teeth, and teeth that look shorter than the adjacent ones.

Our cosmetic dentist in Agoura Hills uses a synthetic acrylic resin known as a composite resin to repair the teeth.

We also use dental bonding to cover stains that cannot be removed with professional teeth whitening methods.

Dental Bonding FAQs

Who Needs Teeth Bonding?

Dental bonding resolves several imperfections. It may be used for resolving functional and aesthetic dental issues.

People who have chipped or crooked teeth can benefit from the procedure since it helps restore the structure and shape of chipped or broken teeth.

Patients with excessive tooth gaps can come to our office for tooth bonding.

When professional teeth whitening fails to address stains on teeth, we suggest dental bonding to mask the stains. We apply tooth bonding over permanently stained teeth.

If you are displeased with the shape, size, color, or shade of your teeth, we can utilize the tooth bonding procedure. It helps restore the look of your teeth.

Additionally, if your teeth are fractured from trauma, we can restore their shape by applying tooth bonding.

Our dentist also uses dental bonding to replace metallic fillings. If silver amalgam fillings are not suitable for you, we can use tooth bonding with composite resin material.

What is the Teeth Bonding Procedure?

A tooth bonding procedure takes only one office visit.

We start with an oral exam to help assess the nature and extent of teeth deformities or staining. We then prepare the teeth to allow for the bonding material to adhere properly.

The dentist scrapes off the front surface of the stained or crooked teeth and records the shade and color of the nearby teeth.

After the preparation, we etch the teeth using an etching agent. The substance is applied to the tooth, allowing it to stay there for around 30 seconds.

An etching agent aims to demineralize the enamel surface of teeth.

We then apply a thin layer of the bonding material over the tooth, thus helping in attaching the compositing filling material to the tooth structure.

Our dentist will then place the composite filling, making sure that it matches the color and shade of the surrounding teeth.

We polymerize or cure the composite filling material with a visible LED light. After that, we do the finishing and polishing of the filling to get the desired results.

How Do You Take Care of Bonded Teeth?

Since bonded teeth fillings are likely to be stained just like untreated teeth, we advise you to brush and floss regularly.

Bonded fillings can get tobacco, coffee, and tea stains. So you need to minimize these staining substances and ensure proper oral hygiene.

Also, eating sticky and hard foods such as nuts and caramel can contribute to the failure of the bond attaching the filling to the tooth, so we ask you to avoid these foods from coming directly to the bonded teeth.

Maintaining regular checkups helps ensure that the bonding remains in good form and if there are any other oral problems, they are checked and resolved.
