The materials used in composite dental bonding La Jolla are comprised of a resin made of special plastics. This material is far safer than traditional amalgam, with the added benefit of matching the same shade color of your teeth. This gives your teeth a natural looking appearance that results in more confidence and more smiles!
The Dental Bonding Procedure - What To Expect
The procedure is performed in only a single visit and generally anesthesia is not needed. This varies case to case. Our La Jolla dentist will first apply the safe material to the site and then begin to shapen and mold it to the general outline of your tooth. After the dentist has successfully applied the material, a special lighting tool is used to harden the material in place for a strong bond that is designed to last. After the material is solidified in place, then dentist will continue to shapen it as needed in order for it to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. The dentist will make sure your bite is comfortable before you walk out of our office. Afterwards, you are free to return home the same day without hassle. The entire procedure is completed in less than 1 hour.
