What Is Dental Bonding?
For cosmetic dental bonding, we apply a tooth-colored resin to conceal imperfections, carefully matching its shade to blend seamlessly with the natural color of your teeth. This resin has the same biocompatible properties as the material used in tooth-colored fillings, ensuring durability against regular eating and drinking.
Common issues addressed with cosmetic dental bonding include:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Stubborn discoloration and severe stains resistant to traditional whitening methods
- Small gaps between teeth
- And more
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Improving the appearance of one or more teeth through cosmetic dental bonding is a quick and straightforward process that often requires just one appointment. Since it’s a nonsurgical treatment, anesthesia is not typically unnecessary.
The procedure involves thorough cleaning, drying, and isolation of the treatment area. Custom-shaded bonding agent, matched to the surrounding teeth, is applied to the tooth's surface. We’ll carefully sculpt the material to expertly address chips, stains, and imperfections.
After achieving the desired look, the resin is solidified using a specialized ultraviolet light within minutes. Some additional shaping may be done to ensure a comfortable bite – and then that's it! You’re ready to show off your stunning new grin.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding has several exceptional advantages, including:
- Entire process is typically completed in a single appointment, providing immediate results
- Can last for several years with proper care
- Easy maintenance, requiring the same practices as natural teeth for optimal health
- Painless treatment, often eliminating the need for local anesthesia.
- A cost-effective alternative to veneers while delivering similar results (though it's important to note that veneers are more durable and stain-resistant)
- Affordable for most patients
