Treatment overview

Dental bonding is the application of a strong, natural-looking resin onto the surface of damaged teeth. Whether your teeth are stained, cracked or mildly misaligned, cosmetic dental bonding can often be used to quickly restore a beautiful smile.

Our method

Once an approach is established for reaching your desired results, Dr. Sherif will begin the procedure. The surface of your damaged teeth are first prepared with a solution, creating an area ideal for bonding. After the material is color blended to match the rest of your teeth, he layers and sculpts it on the prepared teeth. Once in place, the resin is hardened under a special light for lasting results. Finally, Dr. Sherif buffs the dental bonding material to reveal a shining, natural-looking new smile. The bonding materials act as a replacement for missing enamel and dentin, providing durable protection and enhancement for your teeth. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sherif, matches the composite resin to the rest of your teeth to seamlessly blend in and cover any imperfections. Before you know it, you can have the smile you’ve been waiting for.

Key Benefit

Cosmetic composite bonding is a one visit alternate treatment option to porcelain veneers or sometime braces. The treatment uses composite resin which is a putty like material, shaped over the tooth and cured using a blue light. The treatment typically lasts three to five years before needing replacement due to discolouration. Although a filling used to be considered a simple procedure, placing composite bonding in the front of the mouth requires a greater degree of skill. As a cosmetic dentist in London, Beverly Hills and the Malibu area Dr Sherif acquired these techniques. A rubber dam will usually be placed for your comfort but also to keep the tooth dry which lets the filling last extra years longer. Composite fillings are actually tooth coloured resin which is sculptured on the tooth as a soft putty and then hardened with a blue light. These restorations last for many years but are not for patients who suffer from bruxism or grind their teeth, so at your examination I can assess your bite and habits and suggest something more long lasting.
