What Is Dental Bonding?
Simply put, dental bonding uses a natural-looking composite resin to change the appearance of one or more teeth. Composite resin is the same biocompatible, durable, and lifelike material we use for tooth-colored fillings. Since this material is made of fine particles of dental ceramic, plastic, and glass, it bonds exceptionally well to natural tooth structure and can be shaded to match the rest of your teeth. Dental bonding is often used to address:
- Minor chips and cracks.
- Stubborn stains and discoloration.
- Noticeable gaps or spaces.
- Worn-down or small teeth.
- Teeth that are misshapen.
What’s the Process for Getting Dental Bonding?
In most cases, we can transform your smile with dental bonding in a single appointment. First, we’ll usually dry and etch the surface of your tooth. This creates a surface that the dental bonding can form a strong seal with. Next, Dr. Givan will apply the composite resin directly onto the area and sculpt it over the flaw until it looks like a natural part of your tooth. Then, we’ll use a special curing light that will harden the resin and bond it securely into place.
Lastly, we’ll polish it and make sure your bite feels comfortable. Thanks to its custom shade, the composite resin should blend in perfectly with its surroundings, making it practically indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. Since this quick treatment rarely requires anesthesia and the curing light hardens the resin so quickly, you’ll be free to use your treated tooth right after your appointment.
