What Is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a restorative and/or cosmetic medical procedure that is designed to correct a variety of dental imperfections or defects. The bonding process consists of the application of a biocompatible resin to your affected tooth that will correct any imperfections.The composite material is colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless and flawless finish. Once your dentist ensures that the color is the correct hue, they will sculpt the material into the proper shape and allow it to dry.
What Issues Does Bonding Address?
Dental bonding can be used to target a multitude of oral imperfections. You may benefit from dental bonding if your teeth are cracked, chipped, stained, or slightly gapped or misaligned. It should be noted that not every patient will be a good candidate for dental bonding. If you have extremely decayed teeth, or they have a large gap between them, bonding may not be the ideal solution.

The Advantages of Bonding
Bonding is an outpatient procedure that can typically be completed in just one session and requires no post-appointment downtime. While the process is fairly quick, your bonding can last for several years with proper care. Even better, bonding is low-maintenance: all you have to do is maintain your dental hygiene routine. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss at least once. You should also be sure to visit your dentist twice a year for a professional teeth cleaning and check-up.
What Can I Expect From My Dental Bonding Appointment?
The first step in your bonding procedure will entail the utilization of a professional dental contouring process that will prepare your teeth for bonding. In order to attach the resin to your tooth, your dentist will coat the affected area with a special adhesive. After the composite material has been attached to your tooth, your dentist will carefully sculpt the resin into the perfect shape. The dental composite will then be dried using a medical-grade UV light source. Once the procedure is complete, your dentist will conduct a final evaluation to guarantee that you are satisfied with your results.
