Teeth Bondings, White Fillings
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which Dr. Shirin, Thousand Oaks dentist, applies a tooth-colored resin material to your teeth (a durable plastic material) and then cures it with a visible, blue light. The curing part of this cosmetic dentistry procedure is what is responsible for ultimately "bonding" the tooth-colored material to teeth improving their overall appearance.
More On Teeth Bondings Thousand Oaks
Teeth bondings performed in our Thousand Oaks office are made of composite resin fillings that Dr. Shirin places on the front and back of your teeth. Composite resins are responsible for the aesthetic improvement and functional restoration of decayed teeth. Teeth bondings even change the color of your teeth and can reshape them, i.e., correcting crooked teeth or closing wide gaps between them.
In short, the reason teeth bondings are considered cosmetic dentistry is because they cover up natural flaws in your teeth.
Teeth bondings made of tooth-colored composite resin are said to last seven to eleven years.
