Bonding

The tooth bonding procedure

Our dentists select a composite resin (dental bonding material) that matches the natural shade of your teeth.  The existing tooth structure is roughened so that the resin can adhere properly.  Next, the composite resin is carefully applied to the tooth, shaped, and smoothed to achieve the desired look.  The material then is hardened with a high intensity light.  Lastly, the bonded tooth structure is polished to create the natural appearance as the surrounding teeth.

Advantages of Cosmetic Dental Bonding

This is an immediate quick painless procedure which is affordable.  It is definitely a great alternative procedure to more expensive and extensive cosmetic dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridges.  It is an excellent option for individuals looking to repair imperfections in their smile.  Bonding can bridge small gaps between teeth, hide darker stained areas on teeth; cover exposed roots.  The material is very flexible, expanding and contracting with natural tooth to prevent cracks and tooth loss.
