What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to restore beauty and fullness to your smile. If your front teeth are chipped, cracked, spaced or discolored, we can use special material to fill in these areas. The material is durable and long-lasting, and it is matched perfectly with your smile. Bonding normally lasts for over 10 years before replacement may be needed.
Why would Dental Bonding be needed?
The reason dental bonding might be needed or wanted is because it’s a noninvasive way to transform your smile. Oftentimes, no anesthetic is required to apply bonding. It is often done on the front teeth as a way to enhance your natural smile. Bonding can cover things like:
- Spaces and gaps
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Discoloration and stains
Who is a good candidate for Dental Bonding?
Most patients who need bonding or want to have it done are good candidates for the procedure. Dr. Bloom will first examine your teeth to determine if bonding is the right choice for you. Bonding is a durable and noninvasive way to transform your smile. It is often preferred to other, more invasive cosmetic procedures.
How is Dental Bonding done?
The procedure often begins with a bonding agent gel applied to one or more of the front teeth. Composite resin is matched to your smile and placed over the tooth. Dr. Bloom will carefully detail the material so that it looks natural. It is then cured into place so that it does not move or fall out of place. Your new bonding can last for more than a decade without showing any signs of wear. You will love the fact that bonding is a way to change your smile and fill in gaps and spaces without needing to undergo more invasive cosmetic treatment. Bonding can even protect your mouth and teeth from damage from sharp or jagged edges.
