Dental Bonding

Many patients come to Dr. Rajpal with a damaged tooth. Accidents happen and teeth can chip, crack, stain, and become misaligned. In many cases, Dr. Rajpal recommends a procedure called Dental Bonding. Dental Bonding involves using a strong, tooth-colored resin that is applied to the tooth in order to restore a patient’s smile. The bonding resin itself is extremely durable, and is able to reliably replace missing or damaged enamel or dentin. Dr. Rajpal is an experienced cosmetic dentist, and uses dental bonding to skillfully fix imperfections in a patient’s smile. In fact, Dr. Rajpal may be able to use dental bonding to enhance other undamaged teeth that naturally have problems of symmetry or shape.

When is Bonding a Good Solution?

Dental bonding is most often used for minor imperfections of teeth. The most common way dental bonding is used is to fix a chipped or cracked tooth. The dental bonding resin rebuilds the damaged tooth, and seamlessly restores the patient’s smile to its natural state. Before recommending the procedure, Dr. Rajpal gives a thorough examination of the patient’s mouth and determines the type of bonding to use. Patients who are eligible for dental bonding can expect a swift and painless procedure.

The Procedure

The procedure for dental bonding is relatively simple. First, the damaged teeth are covered in a special dental solution that prepares them for the application of the bonding resin. Next, Dr. Rajpal mixes the resin so that it exactly matches the color of the patient’s teeth. The actual procedure involves applying and molding the resin onto the target teeth, covering and fixing any imperfections. Once the teeth have been corrected, Dr. Rajpal hardens the resin with a light and polishes the teeth so they look natural and smooth.
