What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a cosmetic process that helps to improve the appearance of your smile. If you have gaps, spaces or stains on your teeth, bonding can help to cover these areas and help to create a flawless, perfect smile. The procedure is relatively noninvasive with most patients being able to have it done without any type of anesthetic. The bonding material is matched to your existing teeth so that it’s completely unnoticeable.
Why would Dental Bonding be needed?
Bonding can last for about 10 years before you may need to have it replaced. It’s ideal for older teens and adults who need slight work done to their teeth. Some of the flaws that bonding can help cover include:
- Cracks and chips
- Discoloration and stains
- Uneven teeth
- Gaps and spaces
“First appointment, exam and cleaning. They could not have been more pleasant or more professional. Very good first impression, offices neat and clean, staff very well trained, I will be going back.”
Who’s a good candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple, uncomplicated procedure that is incredibly beneficial to the overall look of a patient’s smile. It’s a great alternative to more invasive treatments that help to cover similar flaws. The procedure is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their teeth without the worry of more complicated work. In fact, most bonding can be done in about a half an hour in the office.
What happens during the process of Dental Bonding?
We first apply a bonding agent to the tooth so that the composite material can adhere better. We color match the composite resin to the tooth so that it blends beautifully. Next, we apply the resin to the tooth and smooth it into place. We finely detail the material so that it mimics the look and feel of your actual tooth. The material is then cured with a specialized light so that it hardens into place. Most bonding can last for about a decade before you may need to have it replaced. You can brush and floss your bonded tooth as you would any other area of your mouth.
