Dental bonding is a simple, painless, and affordable procedure that has many uses, including:
- Repairing chipped or broken teeth
- Repairing damages due to wear (Abrasion, Erosion, Abfraction)
- Closing spaces between teeth (Diastema Closure)
- Reshaping teeth
- Covering badly stained teeth
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin. Our dentists prepares the tooth for bonding by placing a mild chemical on it to roughen the surface. Using a shade guide, our dentists select a shade that closely matches your tooth and then mixes and tints the resin. The resin is applied in thin layers and then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser. Our dentists then shape and polish the resin to smooth it and give it a natural look.
The procedure usually takes about 30-60 minutes to complete. You can even get several teeth bonded in one visit. No special techniques are needed to care for bonded teeth - just good oral hygiene.
