Dental bonding can be a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. For younger patients or patients who do not want to commit to a permanent restoration, dental bonding can be an ideal solution. Typically, dental bonding requires less preparation than porcelain veneers. Dental bonding can usually be completed in just one visit. If needed, patients may desire a more permanent solution in the future and may opt for porcelain veneers. With proper care and maintenance, dental bonding can last many years.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
Dental bonding is a quick and typically painless procedure that can be completed in just one visit to Solberg & Miller Dentistry in Altamonte Springs, FL.
This process is similar to getting a tooth filling. We will first numb your mouth. After your mouth is numb, we will begin the procedure by lightly etching the surface of the tooth. This will create a rough surface for the bonding material to securely adhere. Next, we will color match the composite resin to ensure a natural-looking end result. Once the ideal color is determined, we will carefully sculpt the composite resin on to the affected tooth. Your dentist will take careful measures shaping and molding it until we reach the desired appearance. Before fully curing, we will make sure your bite fits comfortably.
Once the ideal look is achieved, we will use a special UV light to activate the hardening process. After composite is set into place, we will lightly polish the tooth for a beautiful, natural finish.
