What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that enhances and perfects the front of your smile. For patients with large spaces and gaps, as well as discoloration, staining, and small cracks, bonding can cover imperfections, improving the look of their teeth. Bonding utilizes composite resin material, matched to the color of your existing teeth. Because the bonding matches your teeth, no one will even know it’s there.
Why is Dental Bonding necessary?
Dental bonding can enhance your smile, helping you regain lost confidence. Bonding can last for up to 10 years before it will need to be replaced. Some of the different flaws and problems that bonding can cover include:
• Spaces and gaps between teeth
• Cracked and chipped front teeth
• Uneven teeth
• Discoloration and staining

What makes you a good candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is ideal for patients looking to transform their smiles. The bonding is done to cover minor imperfections, but can have a major impact on the way that your teeth look. To determine if you’ll benefit from bonding, you will come in for an exam and consultation. We match the bonding material with your existing teeth so that it blends beautifully.
What can be expected with Dental Bonding?
Little to no anesthetic is required for dental bonding. The front teeth are prepped for the bonding material. The composite resin is then placed on the teeth and smoothed to blend with the natural teeth. Once the bonding has been detailed and smoothed, it will be hardened using a bright curing light. Your brand new bonding can last for about 10 years before it is recommended that it be replaced. Bonding is relatively durable and resilient, so it is important that you still brush and floss your front teeth regardless of bonding having been done. Following your treatment, we will provide helpful tips and advice on how to keep your bonding looking its best.
