Dental bonding is usually recommended to close gaps and spaces between the teeth, improve misshapen teeth, whiten severely stained teeth, or restore cracked or chipped teeth. Dental bonding is among the quickest and most conservative treatments available to improve the appearance of your teeth, as it involves little or no removal of your original tooth structure and can typically be completed in a single appointment. The bonding procedure is also very comfortable and does not usually require any anesthetic.
When you receive dental bonding, our prosthodontist will work with you to select a shade of composite resin that matches the color of your teeth in order to produce a natural-looking result. A slightly lighter shade may be used if you are receiving bonding to lighten stained or discolored teeth. After the bonding material has been selected, our prosthodontist will carefully place it onto your tooth structure and shape and sculpt it to fit your teeth and correct the flaws in your smile. After the resin has been placed and shaped, we will harden, trim and polish it to complete your treatment and provide you with a long-lasting solution for your smile.
