Enhance your smile with dental tooth bonding
Composite dental teeth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry technique that can work wonders for your smile. The technique uses an enamel-like resin (plastic) material that matches the shade, translucency and texture of your teeth. It’s applied and hardened using a high intensity light that bonds the resin to your teeth.
Composite tooth bonding can be sculpted to close spaces between your teeth or used to cover up spots, chips, staining or discoloration. Dental tooth bonding is a quick, easy way to kick your smile up a notch, enhancing the appearance of your smile and boosting your self-confidence.

Beautify your smile in just one visit
Dental teeth bonding can usually be completed in just one visit to Top Down Dental in San Jose/Los Gatos. The procedure is so gentle it normally doesn’t require anesthetic.
Dr. Nancy Nehawandian prepares your tooth by lightly roughening the area to be repaired. Once roughened, the surface of your tooth is etched with a gel, and bonding primers and resins are applied. The paste-like consistency of the resin allows Dr. Nancy Nehawandian to sculpt it to an attractive shape. She may apply several layers in order to duplicate the color of your natural tooth. Once the shape and color are ideal, Dr. Nancy Nehawandian uses a high-intensity curing to harden it. With the modern dental technology, Top Down Dental in San Jose/Los Gatos can mimic the color, details and translucency of your teeth for a natural, healthy appearance.
