What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin to enhance the appearance of your smile. Bonding is a great way to quickly and efficiently improve the shade and shape of your teeth. It can be used:
- To correct cracks or gaps in teeth
- To cover up stains or discolored teeth
- As a filling after a cavity has been removed
Despite the benefits, dental bonding treatment has some limitations, such as not being able to mask 100% of certain stains as well as bonding not lasting as long as solutions like dental crowns or veneers.
Dental Bonding Process
First, the doctor will choose a shade of composite resin that will match and enhance your smile. Then the composite resin will be applied and sculpted over your tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin. It will then be polished. Results are achieved immediately and can subtly or drastically change the appearance of your smile.
Bonding is a safe, affordable and aesthetically pleasing solution for many dental problems. If you’d like to learn more about our cosmetic, restorative or preventative dentistry services, contact us today.
