At our dental office, we offer dental bonding as a simple and conservative solution to improve the appearance of your smile. Our dentists may recommend dental bonding to address a variety of cosmetic issues, such as gaps and spaces between teeth, misshapen teeth, stained or discolored teeth, or chipped and cracked teeth.
To create a natural-looking effect, we will select a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth. If you plan to whiten the color of your teeth, we can also use a slightly lighter shade for the bonding material.
One of the benefits of dental bonding is that it typically requires only one visit and usually involves little to no tooth preparation. During the bonding process, our highly skilled dentists and team will apply a malleable, putty-like composite resin directly onto the tooth surface. We will then shape and sculpt the resin to perfect any flaws in the tooth before hardening, trimming and polishing the material for a lasting, aesthetic restoration.
Here are some additional advantages of choosing dental bonding for your smile:
- Conservative Treatment: Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that preserves most of the natural tooth structure.
- Quick and Comfortable: The bonding process is usually completed in just one visit, and because there is minimal to no tooth preparation involved, patients typically experience little to no discomfort.
- Versatile: Dental bonding can be used to address a variety of cosmetic issues, making it a versatile option for patients seeking to enhance the appearance of their smile.
- Durable: Composite resin is a strong and durable material that can last for several years with proper care.
