Dental bonding is a procedure used to fill teeth after removing cavities
and to correct certain imperfections. With just one visit with Dr. Elyassi,
you can regain the natural appearance of teeth by correcting gaps, spots,
chips, and discolorations. The material Dr. Elyassi uses is the most advanced
formulation, a strong and durable resin that is available to be used by
dentists. Dr. Elyassi precisely matches the resin’s color to the patient’s
actual tooth color to accomplish perfection in as little as half an hour
Many people usually feel shy and insecure about smiling due to the minor imperfections in their teeth, stained teeth, and minor chips or gaps that can easily be fix by Dr. Elyassi within minutes. Finally, you can smile with confidence.
Dr. Elyassi begins by matching the resin color with the patient's tooth
color. The surface of the tooth is roughened and applied with a liquid
conditioner; this makes it easier for the bonding material to stick. Next,
the resin is applied to the tooth and molded precisely to a perfect shape.
An ultraviolet “curing” light is shined on the resin to harden
it onto the tooth's surface. Dr. Elyassi smoothes the resin and shapes
it further to perfection, then finalizes his art with a sparkling polish.
Dental bonding can be used for other tooth and health care needs as well. Due to the overwhelming scientific factual evidence about the toxic effects of mercury and some other metals used for dental amalgam fillings, dental bonding has become the number one alternative to amalgam dental fillings and is now preformed as the standard practice by top dentist throughout the world for dental fillings. Dental bonding may even be used to cover the root of a tooth, such as when a patient has a case of receding gums.
-Considered easy and less expensive than some other treatments such as
-Usually requires only one office visit (in most cases)
-Entire procedure is handled in the office without having to involve time or laboratories to create tooth coverings.
-Cosmetic dental bonding doesn't involve the use of anesthetics (except for repairing cavities and fillings)
-Patient only feels minor pressure during the procedure without any anesthetics
-A very minimal amount of the tooth enamel is removed during this procedure; resulting in more of your tooth enamel remaining intact.
The resins used for dental bonding are less stain-resistant than those
used in creating crowns or veneers, so many dentists suggest dental bonding
for making smaller changes.
