Dental bonding is the application of a strong, natural-looking resin onto the surface of damaged teeth. Whether your teeth are stained, cracked or mildly misaligned, cosmetic dental bonding can often be used to quickly restore a beautiful smile. The bonding materials act as a replacement for missing enamel and dentin, providing durable protection and enhancement for your teeth. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, matches the composite resin to the rest of your teeth to seamlessly blend in and cover any imperfections. Before you know it, you can have the smile you’ve been waiting for!
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
If you’re looking for a quick yet effective fix for minor dental problems, consider the benefits of dental bonding:
- Corrects small cracks and chips
- Improves alignment and spacing issues
- Hides stains or discoloration
- Blends with the rest of your teeth
- Strengthens teeth
- Provides quick results
The procedure is an extremely versatile solution for improving the look of your smile. In your initial dental exam, Dr. Sands will highlight how the dental bonding procedure can achieve your goals.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Once an approach is established for reaching your desired results, Dr. Sands will begin the procedure. The surface of your damaged teeth are first prepared with a solution, creating an area ideal for bonding. After the material is color blended to match the rest of your teeth, he layers and sculpts it on the prepared teeth. Once in place, the resin is hardened under a special light for lasting results. Finally, Dr. Sands buffs the dental bonding material to reveal a shining, natural-looking new smile.
