What Is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a procedure that utilizes a composite resin to mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. A dentist can complete the process in one sitting. The dentist will perform the following bonding procedure:

  1. clean and polish the patient’s teeth
  2. match the bonding material to the color of the patient’s existing teeth
  3. apply the composite resin and cure it with a special light
  4. make any final adjustments to the size and shape of the teeth, if needed

Dentists use bonding to resolve many common dental issues, like red wine stains not solved by teeth whitening. Some of the dental problems for which bonding works best include:

  • Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Discolored teeth

What Can Dental Bonding Do for Me?

The goal of tooth bonding is an end product that looks like natural teeth. When patients see an improvement in their smiles, they often mention how it gives them a renewed sense of self-confidence and an increased willingness to socialize. 

If you suffer from a minor imperfection in your smile, dental bonding may offer the right solution for your pearly whites.
