Dental bonding is a safe and effective procedure that can benefit patients in good oral health who wishe to conceal teeth that are:
- Chipped or cracked
- Misshapen or slightly crooked
- Have slight gaps
Patients with more serious dental issues, such as pronounced misalignment or extensive damage, will require restorative or general dentistry treatments before undergoing dental bonding or any other cosmetic procedure. You can depend on our team to conduct an in-depth consultation and analysis to determine if bonding is the best way to meet your goals.
Before performing the dental bonding procedure, your dentist will apply an etching solution to the teeth you wish to treat. This will help your teeth bond to the resin. Once the teeth have been micro-etched, the your dentist will apply a small amount of the resin to your teeth. This may require several layers to achieve the desired results.
Next, the resin will be shaped and smoothed before being hardened, or cured, with a special light. Before treatment is complete, your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to make certain you are satisfied with the results, and that your bite is comfortable and properly balanced.
Preparing for Dental Bonding with Whitening
Your dentist will closely match the bonding material to the color of your teeth for a natural appearance. For this reason, many patients choose to undergo teeth whitening so their bonding treatment can be matched to a brilliant, beautiful shade of white.
