What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding goes by many names, including composite or direct bonding. No matter what you call it, you’ll benefit from an affordable, convenient solution to improve your smile. We use a composite resin material that’s shaded to match the color of your enamel to fix certain flaws, such as:

  • Tooth decay.
  • Chipped or broken teeth.
  • Exposed tooth roots.
  • Abnormally shaped tooth.
  • Dark tooth discoloration or stains.
  • Gaps between teeth.

Dental bonding is a popular alternative to other cosmetic procedures because it’s minimally invasive, and you can achieve the results you want in as little as 1 day. Your new smile can last for many years with the proper care, like maintaining your oral hygiene.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

After an initial consultation to ensure that it’s the right treatment for you, we will schedule you for your procedure. Depending on how many teeth you’re treating, the process can take 30 minutes to 1 hour. If you’re enhancing several teeth, we may recommend more than one visit.

We’ll use a shade guide to find the perfect color to make the resin material. Your tooth will be cleaned before a light acid is applied to it. This is necessary to open the pores in your enamel to create a secure bond. We’ll rinse your tooth and dry it before applying the resin. It’s sculpted into the ideal shape and hardened with a special dental light. Your tooth will be smoothed and polished, so you can walk out of our office with a beautiful smile.

Your treatment can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare. When brushing and flossing, use nonabrasive dental products. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss nightly. Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Avoid anything that might cause your bonding to fall off, like using your teeth as tools, chewing on inedible objects, or eating overly hard or sticky foods.
