Dr. Shlafer Uses Dental Bonding For Outstanding Restorations
Dental bonding allows Dr. Shlafer to quickly correct numerous problems, including minor chips, cracks, and discoloration in a tooth; misshaped teeth; and small gaps between teeth. Many patients seeking treatment for these problems choose dental bonding, since bonding requires little to no reduction of the tooth, is relatively inexpensive, and can often be performed in just one office visit. Since Dr. Shlafer uses premium bonding materials, the results blend indiscernibly with the natural teeth and can last for years.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
The dental bonding process is performed at Dr. Shlafer’s office in Farmington. First, Dr. Shlafer applies a local anesthetic to keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure. Next, he applies a mild etching solution to permit the bonding material to adhere to the tooth. He then applies the tooth-colored ceramic bonding material to the damaged area and cures it with a high-intensity light. Finally, Dr. Shlafer shapes and smoothes the bonded material. The final result looks remarkably natural and can last for years.
If you need to have minor repairs made to a tooth, dental bonding may be the solution. To schedule a consultation and discuss your treatment options, contact Roman Shlafer, DDS today.
