Teeth Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that improves the appearance of teeth that are chipped, have discoloration or are decayed. In other cases, bonding treatment is used to improve tooth shape, to close the gaps between teeth, to cover exposed roots and to replace amalgam fillings. Bonding can be completed in one appointment and is less expensive than crowns or veneers.

Bonding Procedure

The first step in the bonding process is a discussion with the dentist regarding the best color of composite material. When this has been selected, the procedure is done in the following stages:

  • Abrasion: This makes the surface of the tooth rough and prepares it for etching solution to be applied.
  • Bonding agent: This adheres the bonding material to the tooth.
  • Composite resin: The dentist will use this material in small amounts while shaping it. It will then be exposed to a special curing light for hardening.
  • Trim and polish: The composite material is trimmed and sculpted until the desired result is achieved. The dentist will then polish the tooth for smoothness and luster.
  • Occlusion check: The dentist will check the patient’s bite and make any necessary adjustments.

Bonding Procedure After Care

While bonding is an effective restoration method, the resin used has porous qualities and will not last for the lifetime of the patient. The procedure will need to be repeated periodically due to wear and staining. To extend the life of composite material, the patient should follow a regular routine of flossing, brushing and professional cleanings. Certain lifestyle habits, such as drinking coffee, tea and red wine, will need to be adjusted in order to preserve the bonding. Ice chewing and fingernail biting are bad habits that may cause the bonding to crack or even fall off the tooth. A patient’s oral habits will determine how long the bonding will last and how frequently it will require replacement.

Bonding is a fast and cost-effective way to improve a smile. Those who are interested in exploring their options should consult with a dentist to determine if bonding is the right procedure for their needs.

 I had performed a refurbishment of a nearly 30-year-old implant supported Bridge and the finishing work ( 2 crowns and abutments ) of two newly placed implants. The new implants were placed by Dentics 4 months ago. At the time of the new implants, a bone graft procedure was also performed. This was not my first procedure with Dentics and I have had multiple members of my family treated there. All members of my family received outstanding care and work. We think of the Dentics staff as extended family.

Leona I had 18 teeth extracted, all my teeth on top and 7 teeth at the bottom. My teeth have been destroyed by two dentists in Canada. Dentics removed all the infected bone and tissue that was there for 5 years. They did 5 bone grafts and installed membrane along with 10 implants, 6 on top and 4 on the bottom where the molars are. My husband was informed while surgery was performed and was allowed to check in on me from time to time. They performed surgery like clockwork

I found Dentics Cancun to be incredibly professional and compassionate. I was met at the airport by Martin who works at the clinic. He also brought me to and from the hotel for my appointments as well as assisting with my procedure. I was incredibly nervous about the procedure but Dr Sanchez and Martin kept me calm during the procedure. 

I cannot say enough good things about this clinic and about the work of Dr Sanchez. It has been such a relief to be treated so well and to have the procedure explained so well before even arriving in Cancun.

Leona

We have been thrilled with Martin and Dr Sanchez. Their service in making you feel completely safe from start to finish is impeccable. The quality of work is first class and the discounted prices make it truly a bargain. I have had veneers installed while my husband has had nearly every tooth in his mouth replaced with implants by Dr Sanchez. I cannot recommend them enough
