Dental bonding can be done to enhance and perfect your smile. Bonding is typically necessary if there are chips, cracks or spaces between teeth that are causing you to feel badly about the way that your smile looks. Bonding uses composite resin material to perfectly match your existing teeth. The material is blended and shaped to look like your natural smile and cured into place. Dental bonding can last for up to 10 years before needing full replacement.
Why is Dental Bonding needed?
Dental bonding can be thought of as more of a cosmetic procedure, since its main purpose is to enhance and restore your smile. Knowing what bonding can help to cover and fix is vital to understanding if it’s right for you. Some of the different reasons bonding might be needed include:
- Chips and cracks in your teeth
- Spaces and large gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth (some shorter than others)
- Stains and discoloration
What makes you a viable candidate for Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a noninvasive procedure that typically requires little to no anesthetic. Because of this, it is ideal for most patients wanting to enhance their smile and correct small imperfections that would otherwise require a lot of invasive treatment to repair. Before having bonding done, we’ll conduct a consultation and examination to determine if this procedure is right for you.
What can be expected during the Dental Bonding procedure?
The area that will need bonding will be prepared using a special dental material. The composite resin is then placed over the area and smoothed into place. The material is matched to your existing teeth so that it blends in seamlessly and flawlessly. Once the material has been properly shaped to the tooth, it is hardened using a curing light. Your new bonding can last for up to 10 years before it’ll need to be replaced. The procedure is done quickly and comfortably right in our office.
