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
  • Versatile: Can address multiple cosmetic concerns
