Question: What is the Dental Bonding Process?

Answer: To begin the teeth bonding procedure, the dentist selects a composite resin (dental bonding material) that matches the natural shade of your teeth. The dentist then roughens the existing tooth so the resin can adhere properly. Next, the composite resin is carefully applied to the tooth, shaped, and smoothed to achieve the desired look. It is then quickly hardened with a high intensity light. Lastly, the bonded tooth is buffed and polished so it has the same appearance as the surrounding teeth.

Question: So, how does dental bonding work as a “cover up” for problems?

Answer: When your tooth is bonded, a color-customizable material is used which is called a composite. It can cover a stain by matching the composite to your tooth and painting it on – or it can brighten an entire stained tooth with a careful color selection.

Question: What are the benefits of dental bonding?

Answer: This is one of the easiest cosmetic dental procedures there is, as well as one of the least expensive ones. Bonds can usually be done in a short time span, with just one office visit—meaning you do not have to wait several weeks. Additionally, bonding can be done without the removal of very much tooth enamel, making it a non-intrusive process when compared to veneers, bridges, and crowns.
