DENTAL BONDING

Do you hide your smile due to chips, cracks or other dental imperfections? Dental bonding is a terrific option if you are hoping to achieve a beautifully rejuvenated and seamless smile that you are happy to show off. This useful treatment consists of bonding tooth-colored resin substance to the teeth for a smile that is both healthy and natural-looking.

Our expert dentists can accomplish dental bonding as a standalone procedure or combine it with other dental treatments that can help you achieve your dream smile.

What Can Dental Bonding Address?

Dental bonding can be used to:

Repair decayed teeth
Cover small chips or cracks in teeth
Cover up stains or discoloration
Reshape misshapen or unevenly shaped teeth
Fill in gaps between teeth

Candidacy for dental bonding is determined on a case-by-case basis. In the course of your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and review your dental concerns and goals with you. Based on the data they gather, they may propose merging dental bonding with one or more dental procedures. Rest assured that our company will design a tailored treatment plan with your special dental needs in mind.

Procedure Details

Dental bonding is a fairly quick and straightforward procedure that can typically be accomplished in one session in our office. Before treatment, our dentists will use an unique shade guide to select the resin color that best matches the color of your natural teeth. A mild phosphoric acid solution would be applied to the tooth or teeth that will get the bonding. This solution is used to produce tiny channels on the tooth enamel so the bonding material can fasten more strongly to the tooth. After this is finished, our dentists will apply the putty-like resin to the tooth and cautiously mold it until the desired shape and size are accomplished. Laser light will then be concentrated onto the tooth so the resin material can set and bond with the tooth. When the resin material has hardened, the dentists will make the final touches and polish the product for a natural-looking and seamless smile.

The results of dental bonding are able to last for many years, as long as you take decent care. We highly recommend you stay clear of or restrict eating hard or sticky foods that can potentially crack the resin material. For this factor, patients should also eliminate grinding or clenching their teeth. Just like regular teeth, bonded teeth have to be brushed twice a day and flossed daily. Routine dental checkups are vital so our dentists can routinely monitor the function and health of your teeth.
