Bonding is an aesthetic procedure that we use to correct minor irregularities in your tooth’s shape or appearance. We frequently use this cosmetic option for concerns like teeth with:
- Chipped or worn edges
- Gaps between them
- Misshaped or irregular enamel
As a minimally invasive option, bonding makes it simple for you to quickly erase small problems that create a big impact. By just correcting one or two teeth, you can almost feel as if you have a brand new smile.
What to Expect
Your bonding procedure is very simple. In fact, we typically do not even need to numb the area around your tooth.
- First, we will condition your tooth enamel so that the pores allow for the composite material to create a tight bond.
- Next, we select a shade of composite that resembles your natural tooth color – which we then shape over your tooth to recreate the appropriate size and form.
- Finally, a bright light is used to cure the bonding into place.
Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to look into the mirror and see a dramatic improvement in the way your tooth appears. In most cases, conservative bonding procedures can have a tremendous impact on your smile’s features.
Bonding can be used alone, or combined with other aesthetic services like dental veneers, whitening, or even white dental fillings.
