What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a cosmetic option that can help to restore and repair your front teeth. It’s best for patients who have chipped, cracked or unevenly spaced teeth that need only minor cosmetic treatment. Bonding uses a composite resin material to blend seamlessly into the rest of your smile. Most bonding can last for about a decade or longer without the need for special care.
Why is Dental Bonding needed?
Bonding is a great way to improve your smile. It can be done on one or more of your front teeth. Oftentimes, there is no anesthetic that is needed to place the bonding. It can be used to cover areas that are chipped, cracked or have gaps and spaces between them.
Who is a candidate for Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a great alternative to other, more invasive cosmetic options. It is best for otherwise healthy adult teeth. If there is decay on any of your front teeth or if you’re experiencing other problems, we will recommend treatment before bonding is done. Our doctors can examine your teeth to determine if bonding is the right choice for you.
What happens during the Dental Bonding procedure?
The dental bonding process will begin by prepping the tooth to receive the material. A bonding gel is applied to the tooth and then washed away. The tooth is dried thoroughly and the resin placed over it. The composite is then smoothed out and detailed so that it looks as natural as possible. Our doctor will then cure the material with a bright light to harden it. You can then go home loving your brand new smile and the way that it looks. This is a quick and easy way for you to transform your smile for the better in a matter of minutes.
