What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a special procedure used to restore, reshape, and rejuvenate teeth, improving both their function and appearance. Dentists apply a thin layer of tooth-colored microscopically glass-filled resin to the front of the tooth and sculpt it to perfect the patient’s appearance.
What Problems Can Dental Bonding Fix?
Dental bonding is used to repair chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen teeth or stained teeth or to fill in the spaces between teeth.
What Our Patients Have to Say
What is the Dental Bonding Procedure Process?
The dental bonding material is made of composite resin, a plastic-like material that hardens and fuses to the tooth when the dentist shines a special light on it. Once in place, the bonding material is shaped to correct the specific defect, colored to match the patient’s natural tooth and polished until it is smooth.
How Long Does a Dental Bonding Procedure Take?
The dental bonding procedure takes 1 to 2 hours.
How Long Do Dental Bonding Results Last?
The results may last for up to 10 years before any restoration is necessary.
