What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple procedure that uses a special moldable dental-grade plastic known as a composite resin to cover up flaws, irregularities, and stains on the teeth, as well as fill in gaps between them. The composite resin material can also be used to enhance the shape of the teeth.
The special material used in dental bonding will be specially color-matched to your smile’s shade, providing a final look that is totally natural.
About the Dental Bonding Procedure
The entire dental bonding treatment will be completed in just one appointment, and usually in less than an hour. Since it’s not an invasive procedure, no anesthesia or sedation will be administered. In fact, dental bonding does not cause any pain or discomfort for the patient. Many patients will have multiple teeth bonded in a single session.
The teeth that will be treated will be filed down on the surface to create a rough canvas that your dentist will apply a special conditioning gel on. The conditioning gel sticks better to rougher surfaces. The putty-like composite resin is then applied, trimmed, and carefully shaped to achieve the desired shape and outcome. With a special light, the substance hardens permanently.
