The bonding process can usually be completed in a single office appointment lasting one to two hours. The length of your treatment will vary depending on the number of teeth you wish to treat.
Dr. Shainholtz will use a color chart to ensure that the bonding material matches the shade of your teeth. If you wish to whiten your teeth as well, you should undergo this treatment before bonding so we can match the shade of your resin to your newly whitened smile.
Next, he will treat your teeth with a mild acid solution to create a better bonding surface. Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Shainholtz can place the resin and shape it to achieve the desired effect. He may need to apply several layers of resin to achieve the enhancement you want.
Dr. Shainholtz will use a special UV dental light to harden the material. The final step is to make sure that you are satisfied with your results. He will check the symmetry of your teeth and ensure your bite is properly balanced. Any necessary adjustments will be made before you leave our office.
