Teeth Bonding in Bountiful, UT
There are some cracks, chips, and gaps that teeth bonding will not be able to fix. Because of this, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Larsen to determine if teeth bonding will meet your needs. After a thorough exam of your affected teeth, Dr. Larsen will present you with a treatment plan to meet your needs. Here are some commonly asked questions regarding our teeth bonding treatment:
How long will teeth bonding last?
Teeth bonding can last up to ten years if taken care of properly. As long as you maintain good oral hygiene habits, you should see long-lasting results with the bonding resin material.
How does the tooth bonding material stick to my tooth?
Very similar to a dental filling, tooth bonding requires a slight amount of enamel removal to make space for the resin material. Afterward, your tooth will be etched to ensure the resin material has something to adhere firmly to. The resin material is sealed onto your tooth using ultraviolet light and then polished down so that it does not stick out from your natural tooth.
How many visits will I need to complete the tooth bonding process?
Tooth bonding can be completed with one visit to our office. It does not require any numbing solutions to your tooth, as it is a simple and painless process. After the resin is bonded to your tooth, you will not need any additional visits besides your regularly scheduled dental cleanings to maintain your overall dental hygiene.
