What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding involves correcting front teeth that have minor flaws and imperfections. Bonding uses a material known as composite resin to evenly blend into the teeth to cover stains, discoloration, chips, cracks and uneven spacing. The composite resin is matched perfectly to your existing teeth so that no one will know treatment has been done. Your bonding can last for about 10 years before needing to be replaced.

What makes you a good candidate for Dental Bonding?
Bonding typically requires little to no anesthetic, so it’s a safe choice for most patients. You will come in for an exam prior to having bonding done so that we can determine if it’s the right choice for you. Because bonding can last for a decade or longer with proper care, you can expect a long-term and durable aesthetic option. Most people who would like dental bonding can safely and easily have treatment done in our office.
What happens during the procedure for Dental Bonding?
You will first come in and have the affected teeth prepped for the bonding agent. The teeth are lightly buffed to help the material adhere better to the area. Composite resin is then applied to the tooth and smoothed into place. With the help of a bright curing light, the material is hardened into place. Any rough edges are smoothed so that the bonding looks and feels like your natural teeth. The new bonding will last for about a decade before it’s recommended that you have it replaced.
