Dr. Ivan Ho recommends bonding as a simple, rapid and cost-effective option if you wish to get rid of your stained, chipped or cracked teeth.
Dental bonding, also known as composite resin bonding, is a process in which a dentist applies a tooth-colored filling material on damaged teeth to restore their structure and aesthetics. The process of dental bonding is quick and straightforward and can be completed within 30 minutes for each tooth. The straightforward procedure starts with Dr. Ho removing the tooth portion that contains the undesired cavities or discoloration. Next, he will apply a mild etching agent on the prepared teeth for 30 seconds, making very minute pores on the surface of your teeth. This process allows the composite bonding materials to seamlessly attach to your tooth.
Dr. Ho will carefully match the shade and color of the resin composite with your natural tooth before sculpting the tooth so that it functions and looks natural. Once the tooth has been precisely shaped, he will use ultraviolet light to polymerize the resin so that it hardens and can resist biting forces. He also uses aesthetic dental bonding for restoring chipped, fractured or discolored teeth in patients who wish to get a complete smile makeover.
Dr. Ho uses the bonding resin like a sculptor uses clay, to perfectly sculpt natural, lasting and beautiful smiles from cracked and chipped teeth.
