What You Need to Know About Dental Bonding

Did you know that dental bonding is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments? By applying a composite resin material to the surface of your teeth, it can help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile

Enhance your smile with dental bonding!

This material can be molded and polished to match the shape and color of your natural teeth, blending seamlessly with the rest of your mouth. Because of this feature, dental bonding is a great choice to address a variety of problems, including:

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Small chips or cracks
  • Changes to the size or shape of a tooth
  • Minor alignment issues

Additionally, the composite resin material can be used to fill tiny cavities and correct crooked teeth. 

There are several reasons that patients choose dental bonding over traditional crowns or veneers. To start, the procedure is much easier, as it doesn’t require anesthesia or drilling. Even better, it’s less expensive than other cosmetic dentistry options. Plus, it can often be treated in just one visit. Lastly, unlike crowns or veneers, it’s not permanent, although it can last many years with proper care and maintenance. If needed, you can make changes to your bonding without costly work.

Our team will work with you to ensure you get the desired results from your dental bonding.

First, we’ll assess your teeth and discuss the ultimate goals for your smile. Before the procedure begins, we’ll carefully clean your teeth to prepare them. We then use an ultraviolet light to cure the composite resin material. Once it hardens, we shape and polish it to ensure a natural-looking finish. 

Following your appointment, it’s important to properly care for your bonded teeth. You need to brush twice daily with a fluoridated toothpaste and floss once a day. Additionally, it’s important to schedule a professional cleaning and check-up every six months. You may also want to limit foods that may damage your bonded teeth, like red wine (stains) or hard candy (cracks).
