WHAT IS DENTAL BONDING?
Bonding is a common cosmetic procedure that can be done comfortably in our office. In many cases, bonding doesn't even require any type of anesthetic to complete. Bonding uses a material known as composite resin to carefully fill in gaps, spaces and chipped areas for a beautifully finished smile.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT OR NEED DENTAL BONDING?
Dental bonding can help fill in gaps or spaces between teeth or repair a chipped tooth or teeth. Bonding is typically done for cosmetic reasons, though it can be beneficial for patients whose teeth are sharp and jagged, creating a smooth edge so your teeth look and feel better.
WHAT MAKES A PATIENT A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL BONDING?
We will examine your teeth carefully before determining if bonding is right for you. Most of our patients who either want or need bonding can successfully have it placed. If the tooth is severely damaged or if you're experiencing pain, other treatments may be necessary. Older bonding material can be easily replaced by our team in the office.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING DENTAL BONDING?
We start by slightly roughing up the surface of the tooth needing bonding. This helps the composite bond to the tooth. We will ensure the composite matches the color of the tooth before placing it. From there, the resin is shaped, smoothed and cured with a bright dental light. Bonding can be brushed and flossed around normally to keep the teeth and gums healthy.
