We offer dental bonding to our patients to restore, reshape, or cover badly stained teeth. Bonding can be used to lighten any stains you may have, cover up minor gaps and correct awkward-looking, crooked teeth. It is quick, affordable, relatively painless, and long-lasting.
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin. Dr. Muntwyler prepares the tooth for bonding by placing a mild chemical on it to roughen the surface. Using a shade guide, Dr. Muntwyler selects a shade that closely matches your tooth and then mixes and tints the resin. The resin is applied in thin layers and then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. Dr. Muntwyler then shapes and polishes the resin to smooth it and give it a natural look.
The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You can even get several teeth bonded in one visit. No special techniques are needed to care for bonded teeth - just good oral hygiene.
