When you’re looking to fix your smile from a cosmetic – and functional – standpoint, you have many different options to choose from. There isn’t any single good or bad procedure. Rather, the procedure you choose to fix your smile will be based on your needs and the recommendation of Dr. Melissa Ravago.

One recommendation Dr. Melissa Ravago may make is to undergo dental bonding. So let’s look at what that procedure is.

What is it?

Dental bonding is a straightforward procedure. It entails the team here at Ravago Dental applying tooth-colored resin to fix chipped, fractured, decayed, or discolored teeth. It’s among the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures, and it’s something you should seriously consider.

How does it work?

First, Dr. Melissa Ravago has to prepare the teeth for bonding. The teeth have to be “roughed up” a bit, so that the bonding resin adheres properly to your teeth. Next, she will apply the resin to your teeth and form it until it’s in the proper shape. Then the material is hardened with a UV light, polished, and you’re ready to go.

The entire procedure usually takes less than half an hour, and can help you fix minor imperfections in your smile. If you think that dental bonding can help you, please call us today at 505.292.6414 to schedule a consultation.
