At Hover Dental Group, we understand the power of a beautiful smile. Our dentist and team are proud to offer dental bonding, a simple yet effective procedure designed to enhance and perfect your smile. With our expert care, even the smallest changes can make a big difference in how you feel about your smile.
Understanding Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a straightforward cosmetic procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to your teeth. This resin is then hardened with a special light, bonding it to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile. It is a fantastic option for those looking to make minor adjustments or repairs without undergoing more invasive procedures.
This procedure can address a variety of dental issues, including:
- Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Closing small gaps between teeth
- Improving the appearance of discolored teeth
- Changing the shape of teeth
- Serving as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
The Bonding Process
The process is typically quick and painless, often completed in a single visit. Here is what you can expect during a dental bonding session:
- Preparation: Little to no preparation is needed. Anesthesia is usually not required unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth.
- Bonding Process: The surface of the tooth will be roughened, and applied with a conditioning liquid applied. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded and smoothed to the desired shape.
- Setting the Resin: An ultraviolet light or laser is used to harden the material.
- Finishing Touches: After the material is hardened, further trimming and shaping may occur, followed by polishing to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
- Aesthetically Pleasing: Matches the appearance of your natural teeth
- Minimally Invasive: Requires minimal tooth enamel removal
- Cost-Effective: Generally more affordable than other cosmetic procedures
- Time-Efficient: Usually completed in one appointment
