What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a great way to enhance your smile without committing to a more lasting procedure. It can be used to fix chips in the tooth, close small gaps and alter the shape and color of the tooth. As it is made from a tooth-colored resin material, your tooth will retain its natural look. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, dental bonding is reversible so you can change things back if desired. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and offers excellent results that last for several years with proper care and maintenance.

When is Dental Bonding Used?

Bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that has grown in popularity due to its single day treatment and conservative approach. Throughout the procedure, a composite resin is shaped and polished to match the color of the surrounding teeth. Additionally, this process can be used to alter the shape or color of teeth, as well as close any gaps in between them. Another popular function of bonding is that it can protect part of a tooth's root which may become exposed to age due to receding gum lines over time.

What Can Dental Bonding Conceal?

Dental bonding is frequently recommended when one wishes to conceal:

  • Chips or cracks in their teeth
  • Camouflage tooth discoloration
  • Close gaps and spaces between their teeth

Bonding can also:

  • Make the teeth longer, wider, and match the shape of adjacent teeth
  • Change the shape of the tooth or teeth

What is Bonding Made From?

Dental bonding uses composite resin material to accomplish these results. This material is specifically suited for this type of procedure due to its versatility. This is the same material used for filling cavities, replacing old silver fillings with a more aesthetically pleasing alternative, and protecting roots exposed due to gum recession. The composite resin material adheres easily with the tooth’s enamel providing strong and reliable results. Dentists use of this material due to its strength, durability, and flexibility in achieving a variety of restorative goals.

What is the Recovery for Dental Bonding?

There is no waiting period associated with the application of the bonding material, so you can return to your normal activities immediately after leaving your dentist's office. This makes dental bonding more accessible and convenient than many other treatments. The process itself typically takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes depending on the number of teeth being treated and the complexity of their condition.
