Dental Bonding Q & A

 

What is dental bonding?

During dental bonding, your dentist bonds a durable resin to your teeth to strengthen them and improve their color, shape, and overall appearance. Dental bonding materials match the color of your surrounding natural teeth. The procedure is fast, painless, and produces exceptional results.

What are the benefits of dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that repairs teeth that are:

  • Cracked
  • Broken
  • Chipped
  • Decaying
  • Discolored
  • Gapped
  • Uneven
  • Misshapen
  • Crooked
  • Weak

The procedure can also protect the exposed roots of your teeth. It’s highly effective and produces dramatic results without any downtime.

Is dental bonding right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental bonding at Smile Dental, your dentist reviews your oral health history and examines your teeth and gums. They often take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. If you have a lot of tooth damage or decay, veneers or crowns could be just what you’re looking for.

What happens during dental bonding?

Before dental bonding, your dentist uses a shade guide to pick a composite resin that perfectly matches your natural teeth’s color. They roughen the surface of your teeth before applying a special adhesive that helps bonding agents stick to the teeth. Your provider then applies the resins and molds and shapes each tooth to perfect its appearance.

To complete the process, your dentist uses ultraviolet light to harden the dental materials and strengthen your teeth. The procedure usually lasts 30-60 minutes, but each patient is different. After the procedure, there’s no downtime. You can get back to your daily routine immediately.

How should I care for newly restored teeth?

Practice exceptional oral hygiene habits to maximize the life of bonded teeth. Properly care for your teeth and gums at home by:

  • Brushing your teeth after meals
  • Flossing every day
  • Not biting on your nails
  • Avoiding chewing on hard objects
  • Limiting foods and drinks that stain them
  • Attending dental cleanings and exams every six months
