Dental Bonding

All About Dental Bonding

One of the most common dental procedures to fix tooth imperfections is dental bonding. It’s routine, inexpensive, and reversible. It can be used to fix damaged teeth, discolored teeth, and tooth size.
Dental bonding is made up of a resin that looks like your natural tooth. From there, it can be used in any number of ways to fix or change the look of a tooth. The resin is the same product used to fill cavities, replace old fillings, and protect teeth exposed to gum recession.

What Bonding Can Do

The Process

01 icon

Bonding comes after your dentist has done X-rays and addressed any oral health issues like cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. Then, you will sit down with the dentist for the bonding.

That includes the dentist picking a shade that matches your teeth, roughening your tooth for the bonding to stick, and applying the material.

The dentist will mold the material on the tooth and smooth it. The bonding is hardened with a curing light. The final step is to polish the tooth to make it look natural. The whole procedure takes about an hour.

It is pain-free and doesn’t require any time of anesthesia. However, you could feel some sensitivity immediately following the procedure. This is temporary. Afterward, you can brush and floss a bonded tooth just like all your other teeth. Need bonding to improve the look of your smile?
