What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can enhance your smile. Bonding involves applying a thin layer of composite resin over an area that is damaged or imperfect in some way. You can have bonding placed over gaps, spaces and areas in a tooth that have broken or cracked. Most bonding can last for well over an entire decade before replacement is necessary.

Why is Dental Bonding needed?

Bonding is necessary when you are looking for a quick and easy way to transform your smile. Bonding can be done in just a matter of 30 minutes and requires no anesthetic. It is often done to just the front teeth as a way to get them looking their best. Bonding can help to prevent the need for other, more invasive procedures.

Who is a candidate for Dental Bonding?

We can examine your teeth to determine if bonding is needed. Most adult patients with otherwise healthy teeth can benefit from bonding. We will make sure that the underlying teeth are free of decay and other problems. The goal is to provide you with a full smile that you can feel proud to show off.

What happens during the Dental Bonding procedure?

The bonding procedure begins by filing down the tooth to create a rough surface for the material. Bonding gel is added to the tooth and composite resin is placed over it. The composite resin is detailed into place to create a beautiful, flawless finish. It is then cured with bright lights so that you can experience the beauty of a full smile. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes in our office and can be done on one or more of the front teeth. Bonding can last for many years, and replacing the bonding is just as easy as placing it initially. You will enjoy the fact that this particular procedure requires no anesthetic or injections to complete.
