Your dentist at Advanced Family Dental will select the most suitable composite resin (with matching color). He or she will use a shade guide for this. Our dentist will ensure that the color chosen matches that of your other teeth perfectly.
After selecting the color, the dentist at Miami will roughen the surface of the affected tooth by etching or slightly abrading it. A conditioning liquid will be used to coat the tooth surface. This will enhance adherence of the bonding material.
When preparing the tooth, the dentist at Advanced Family Dental will apply the resin (usually putty-like). The resin will be molded while being smoothened until the desired shape is achieved. A laser or an ultraviolet light is used to harden the material.
After hardening the bonding material, the dentist at Miami will shape and trim it further. Thereafter, he or she will have the material polished until its sheen matches the rest of the tooth.
A cosmetic bonding procedure at Advanced Family Dental takes no more than an hour. However, if you need to work on more than one tooth, then that will require multiple visits, but not to worry, we are up to the task.
Please note that the resin may be stained with coffee, tea, cigarette smoke or other stainable substances. To minimize or prevent stains, you should not drink or eat foods that have the potential to stain, for the first 48 days post cosmetic procedure. Also, ensure that your teeth is brushed regularly and professionally cleaned by a dentist at Miami.
