What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a type of cosmetic procedure that helps to cover flaws and small imperfects in the front of your smile. Bonding uses composite resin, which is the same material used in dental fillings. This material is tooth-colored, and is matched to your existing dentition. Bonding can be used to cover or build in areas with spaces, gaps, small chips and cracks.
Why is Dental Bonding necessary?
Dental bonding is normally necessary if you’re unhappy with your smile, and need a quick and drastic change. Bonding normally lasts for about a decade before it’s recommended it be replaced. You can feel confident in your smile knowing that bonding has fixed the flaws that concerned you. Most bonding procedures require no anesthetic, so they’re comfortable and ideal for the majority of patients needing treatment.

What happens during Dental Bonding?
The teeth that will need bonding will be roughed slightly, and a bonding agent applied. The composite is then placed over the area and carefully smoothed so that it mimics the look of your natural tooth. The material is then hardened with a curing light so that it stays in place. With proper care, your bonding will last for about a decade, or even longer, before we recommend it be replaced. Bonding is incredibly durable and resilient, so it’s a great choice for patients of varying needs. While bonding is mostly used for cosmetic purposes, it can even help in restoring function to your mouth, as it will fill in gaps, spaces, and smooth any jagged or rough edges.
