Dental Bonding

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can enhance and perfect the front of your smile. Composite resin is used for bonding, providing an aesthetically-appealing look that you’ll enjoy for years. The procedure can be done to cover areas that have chipped, cracked, broken or to build up spaces and areas of staining. Bonding can last for about 10 years with proper maintenance and oral hygiene.

Why is Dental Bonding needed?

Dental bonding has been used for years to enhance smiles and create more lasting impressions. If you’re unhappy with the way that your teeth look right now, you can benefit from what bonding is able to do for you. Some of the things that bonding can help cover include:

  • Spaces between teeth
  • Chips and small cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Staining
  • Uneven teeth

Who’s a good candidate for Dental Bonding?

Bonding uses either little to no local anesthetic whatsoever, so it’s ideal for most patients. We color match the bonding material with your existing smile, so you can benefit from bonding that won’t be obvious or apparent when you smile. Bonding is ideal for patients who want a more uniform-looking smile without all of the work involved. The procedure is essential for correcting minor problems at the front of your smile.

What happens during the Dental Bonding procedure?

The dental bonding procedure is incredibly easy. Oftentimes, no anesthetic is required in order for bonding to be applied. A bonding agent is first applied to the teeth to enhance adhesion of the composite resin. The material itself is then placed over the area and smoothed carefully into place. The bonding is then detailed to create a realistic and appealing look. A curing light is then used to harden the composite resin and keep it in place. We’ll file down the bonding so that it’s comfortable and matches the rest of your smile perfectly.
