Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Fixing Minor Chips and Flaws in Teeth

dental bonding Cosmetic dental bonding (also called tooth bonding) is the practice of using soft composite resin to fix minor chips or cracks on teeth to enhance and improve the look of your smile. Dental bonding involves placing composite resin over a front tooth that is cracked, broken, chipped or that has gaps and spaces between.

The composite resin is pliable, which allows the doctor to mold it into any shape and polish it to any shade. Once the doctor is happy with the resin, they can use a light to set the bonding, hardening it. Bonding is durable and long-lasting, with most patients having their bonding for 10 or more years.

Who is a Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Tooth bonding can fix a defect or imperfection within a tooth. If you have chipped teeth we can use dental bonding to repair your smile.

Some of the benefits of cosmetic tooth bonding are:

  • Extremely affordable and covered by most basic insurance plans.
  • Low-cost alternative to other procedures, including porcelain veneers.
  • Requires very little, if any, removal of enamel from healthy or existing teeth
  • Does not require anesthesia
  • Unless multiple teeth are involved, bonding is typically conducted in one visit

If you have a gap between their teeth, dental bonding is a great way to close the space without using orthodontic measures.

What Happens During Dental Bonding Procedures?

The bonding procedure will begin by using a shade guide to select a shade of resin that will match the natural color of the tooth most closely. The surface of the tooth is then roughened and lightly coated with a conditioning liquid so that the bonding material will stick to the surface more easily. The putty-like resin is placed and smoothed out so that it looks like your natural tooth.

The resin is hardened using an ultraviolet light. After the resin is set, we will complete any finishing touches, such as additional shaping and polishing of the bonding to match the rest of your teeth. You can brush and floss around the bonding as you would your natural teeth.
