What is Bonding?
Bonding is a restorative treatment that is painless and used to repair minor damages to the teeth. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that can be matched the natural color our your teeth easily shaped to the shape and size of the chipped or broken tooth and can even be used to build up teeth and fill the gap between them. It hardens very fast just by exposing it to blue light. We offer bonding near you at Harmony Dental Care in Waterloo, ON.
How Bonding is Done
The tooth is prepared for the filling. A mild chemical is then applied on the tooth to make it a little rough. A tooth glue is applied which helps the composite resin to bond to the enamel of your tooth. The composite resin matching the colour of your natural teeth is chosen and is applied in layers on your tooth. Each layer is hardened using a blue light. The filling is then shaped and polished so that it blends with the tooth and looks as natural as possible.
What are Porcelain Veneers Near You?
A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to improve its colour, shape, length, and/or alignment; to close space, and to restore fractured and root canal treated teeth. They are often made of composite resin or porcelain.
Direct composite veneers generally provide a more conservative approach and can be placed in one visit without laboratory involvement or laboratory fees. It is a low-cost solution for many aesthetic problems. Commonly, little or no enamel removal is required, and they can be easily repaired and modified. However, the chair time required for their placement can be considerable and they do not maintain their appearance as well as ceramic restorations over time.
Porcelain veneers in Waterloo, ON N2J 3A6, have gained wide acceptance in recent years because of their excellent durability. Because of their conservative preparation and beautiful aesthetics, they have become the treatment of choice for filling in the front teeth. They are more aesthetic and long-lasting when compared to composite resin veneers and they do not change colour or stain. However, porcelain veneers take at least 2 dental visits when compared to composite resin veneers.
How Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers are Applied
The procedure for composite resin veneers is the same as the bonding procedure. However, for porcelain veneers near you, a thin layer of the enamel is removed from the teeth to make room for the veneers and a mould is made which is used by the dental lab to custom-make the porcelain veneers. In the meantime, temporary veneers are placed. On the next visit, the temporary veneers are removed, a mild chemical is applied on the teeth to make them a little rough and the veneers are then glued to the teeth one by one, using cement.
