Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the bonding process, your skilled dentist places a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty-like when first applied, it can be shaped and sculpted to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed, and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to the office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be comfortable and painless.
Your dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. A shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth will be used for a natural-looking effect. If you prefer, a slightly lighter shade may be used to whiten the color of your teeth.
