Enameloplasty (tooth contouring) is commonly used alongside dental bonding. This procedure involves removing a very thin layer of enamel to correct imperfections like chipped teeth, pointed teeth, and uneven teeth.

how it works: The Dental bonding process

cosmetic & oral exam

To begin the process, Dr. Eastwood will see you for a cosmetic exam at Summerbrook Dental. At your appointment, he will check your oral health and examine your teeth. Then, he will discuss how you feel about your smile, and which flaws you want to correct. Together, you’ll come up with a treatment plan that will restore your smile and your confidence.

cleaning and preparing your tooth

At your next appointment, Dr. Eastwood will begin your treatment by cleaning your tooth, then applying a mild, harmless acid solution. This acid helps roughen up the slick enamel, allowing the dental bonding resin to get a strong, secure hold on the tooth.

resin selection and application

Next, Dr. Eastwood will choose a type of dental resin that matches your smile perfectly, and apply it directly to the tooth. Layer-by-layer, he will sculpt, harden, and trim the bonding material to restore the shape of your tooth.

final trimming and bite check

Once the overall tooth shape is perfect, Dr. Calvin Eastwood will trim the tooth and add fine detail, and then check your bite. After he makes a few final adjustments, you’ll be done. You’ll be sent home, or the process will be repeated if you are having multiple teeth bonded in one appointment.

More About Dental bonding

  • The Benefits of Dental Bonding

    Dental bonding has a lot of great benefits. First, it’s really affordable. Compared to alternatives like veneers, bonding is a lot less expensive, while still offering excellent cosmetic results. If you’re on a tight budget but you want to enhance your smile, bonding is a great choice.

    In addition, dental bonding is non-invasive. It requires no enamel removal or drilling of your teeth, and no numbing shots. This makes it an excellent option if you’re intimidated by dentistry or dental anxiety.

    This also means that bonding can be reversed. Unlike veneers, which require permanent enamel removal, dental bonding leaves your tooth structure intact. While it’s rare to do this, patients can opt to have their bonding removed in the future without harming their oral health.

  • dental bonding lifespan

    Dental bonding has a typical lifespan of up to 5-8 years, but it can last 10+ years with proper care. We recommend maintaining good at-home oral hygiene and a healthy diet and lifestyle. You should also visit Dr. Eastwood for an appointment every six months. He will examine your natural teeth and your bonded teeth to make sure they’re healthy and strong.. If you have naturally-sensitive teeth, discuss this with Dr. Eastwood before your treatment begins. He may adjust the frequency and intensity of your treatments.

    In addition, you can take steps like using Sensodyne or a similar anti sensitivity toothpaste during your treatment. Avoiding really hot and cold foods and drinks may also be helpful. You can also take medication like ibuprofen or even use a numbing product like Orajel if you are experiencing serious sensitivity.
