With our CEREC cad/cam machine, you can have your crown or other restoration completed in simply one visit. We will design and custom fit your tooth precisely with our computer system milling unit right in the office.

Composite Dental Bonding
Bonding is a treatment where we apply a tooth-colored composite product to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden, and polish it. It can be utilized in specific scenarios where a tooth has actually been damaged or become stained. These are normally small repairs, ones that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive methods instead of through a more costly dental treatment.
Here's How It Works:
Bonding involves adhering composite resin material that is matched to the color of the tooth, to the front of the tooth. This is done to fix damage done to the tooth by decay, to modify the positioning of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. First the surface of the tooth is roughened in order to accept the bonding and hold it. A gel is applied to micro etch the tooth surface area, and a primer/bond agent is applied so the material adheres to the surface. Then the material itself is positioned on the tooth and solidified with intense light. The composite resin material is shaped and polished to get a glossy finish as a last step.
