Dental bonding is a simple, same day alternative to porcelain veneers for many patients who want to improve the overall appearance of their smiles. We use the same composite resin material used for tooth-colored fillings to repair and conceal chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in smiles. The process is simple. We apply an etchant material to the surfaces of teeth. Then, we shape the putty-like composite resin into position over the flawed parts of the tooth to correct or conceal chips, cracks, stains, and gaps in the smile. Once in place, the composite resin is hardened into position, and we smooth and polish the resin into position, creating a flawless smile.
Dental bonding is a good, cost effective cosmetic dentistry solution for patients who want to correct or conceal numerous minor smile flaws. No treatment is right for every patient, and we won’t recommend dental bonding for patients with large chips or gaps, but for smaller areas, dental bonding works very well.
Cosmetic bonding material creates a strong, natural bond with the tooth, making these treatments long lasting and natural looking and feeling. With proper care, you can expect to maintain your newly transformed smile for a decade or longer.
Once your cosmetic bonding procedure is complete, you will simply need to brush and floss as usual and visit our office twice a year. We will recommend you use a soft bristled toothbrush and minimally abrasive toothpaste to protect the bonding material from wear. You should also use a waxed floss or water flosser to prevent any pulling or tugging at the bonding material. During regular dental appointments, we’ll evaluate your smile and recommend repairs as necessary to maintain the natural appearance. To ensure your newly improved smile remains in place for the longest possible time, you should also keep the following in mind:
