What Is Dental Bonding?
Composite dental bonding involves the use of a composite resin material that will cover and enhance small imperfections. If you have chips, cracks, spaces, gaps and discoloration on the front of your teeth, bonding is specifically meant to correct these problems. Bonding requires no anesthetic, so the procedure is quick and painless. Our doctors work with you to ensure that your bonding is natural-looking and beautiful.
Why Would You Need Composite Dental Bonding?
Most often, composite dental bonding is used to build up teeth that have chipped or cracked. However, it can also be used to fill in gaps and large spaces between teeth. Bonding may even be used to lengthen teeth that appear short and unattractive. Our goal with bonding is to create a beautiful smile without the use of restorative work like veneers or crowns.
What Makes You A Candidate For Composite Dental Bonding?
If you think you may be a good candidate for bonding and that you’d benefit from the procedure, you’re more than likely right. Bonding is noninvasive and can be done on adult patients who have been to the dentist at least once in the last year. The procedure is done quickly, but you’re left with a gorgeous, natural smile that enhances your confidence. Bonding can last for about a decade with proper care, so you won’t need to constantly worry about it falling off.
What Happens During The Procedure For Composite Dental Bonding?
First, the area that will be bonded is prepped using a dental material that provides superior adhesion of the composite resin. The resin is then placed on top of the tooth and expertly smoothed down into place. Our doctors work meticulously so that the area looks detailed and completely natural. Once the composite is shaped into place, it’s cured using a blue curing light. You can enjoy a beautiful smile with bonding that will last for at least 10 years.
