What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding, sometimes called "tooth bonding," is one of the quickest, easiest cosmetic dental procedures available. It rarely involves anesthesia and doesn't require multiple visits.

Dental bonding is a treatment where a specialized resin bonding material is expertly applied to your tooth. The entire dental bonding process can be performed in as little as one office visit! We will work with you to develop a personalized dental bonding treatment, for a uniquely stunning smile that fits you perfectly.

Who Needs Tooth Bonding?

Simply stated, dental bonding is a quick and simple fix for any imperfection in a tooth. Anyone who has decayed, discolored, or cracked teeth can benefit from this procedure. It can also be used to close small gaps between the teeth that feel unsightly or uncomfortable.

Finally, if someone has a smaller tooth, dental bonding can be used to increase its size. Say you've got a tooth that's a bit shorter than the rest - dental bonding can make that little tooth match the others in size.

What Does Dental Bonding Treat?

There are a variety of things that dental bonding can treat, both cosmetic and health-wise for your teeth.

Fixes Chipped And Damaged Teeth

Dental bonding fixes imperfections in your teeth. It fixes chipped teeth and covers cracks in your teeth. Bonding can also fill in gaps between teeth that make dental care more challenging.

Deals With Minor Cosmetic Issues

Dental bonding can also cover decayed, discolored teeth and can function as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings.

Comparable Alternative To Dental Veneers

Ultimately, dental bonding is a comparable alternative to dental veneers that would fix these problems on a less permanent basis - specifically for those who wish to revisit their cosmetic concerns at a later date or those needing a more cost-effective option in the short-term.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a great option for anyone looking for a little bit of minor correction or cosmetic improvement in their teeth.

Are There Any Dental Health Benefits?

Dental bonding offers many health benefits. One of the most important is that it requires less tooth enamel to be removed than some methods that do similar treatment.

It also helps to fill in gaps, repair chipped and broken teeth, and requires little recovery time. All of these mean your mouth is healthier and more capable of dealing with the regular use from day to day - preventing further damage that could ultimately lead to worse dental conditions.

Will My Teeth Really Look Better After Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cost-effective and efficient service for "cleaning up" the appearance of mildly unsightly teeth. This process gives you natural-looking, gorgeous results in as little as one dental visit.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?

Tooth bonding can last up to ten years with proper oral hygiene.

How Hard are Bonded Teeth to Care For?

The fantastic news is that bonded teeth require no special care. You treat them as you would your natural teeth, taking care to follow good oral hygiene like brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth with antiseptic mouthwash two times daily.

Schedule regular checkups with your dental professional and have twice-annual cleanings, as well, to maintain your bonded teeth.

It's always good to avoid biting fingernails, chewing on pens or pencils, ice, hard food objects (think jawbreakers), as well. And never use your teeth - bonded or otherwise - as an opener for cans, bottles, or bags.

What's The Cost For Dental Bonding?

One of the great things about dental bonding is that it is less expensive than other procedures. Of course, certain details will vary from patient to patient, meaning the price will vary from person to person.

  • How many teeth need to be bonded? The number of teeth will affect the price.
  • What kind of damage is being dealt with? Covering a tooth will cost differently than filling in a gap or covering chips in the teeth.

If dental bonding is the right choice for your dental care needs, our team will work together to create the right plan with an estimate that meets your budget.

What Should I Expect During My Visit?

We will start by welcoming you to our office for an initial consultation. This will involve X-rays and an examination with Dr. Omid Barkhordar who will use his knowledge and expertise to create a treatment plan that best fits your needs, budget, and schedule.

How Do You Know What Color To Use?

Upon your arrival, you will be escorted into a patient room here at See Me Smile where we'll compare your teeth to a shade guide. This allows us to match the composite resin color as closely as possible to your natural teeth for the most natural look possible.

What Is The Procedure For Bonding?

After the color matching process, whatever surface(s) will have bonding will be roughened by your dentist. Then, a liquid that allows the bonding agent to stick to your teeth will be applied.

We will next mold the bonding material directly to your tooth. After the molding is done, we will use our modern curing light to securely affix the material to your tooth and carefully shape the bonded tooth to transform your smile.

If necessary, we may further shape the tooth after the resin hardens to create the perfect, naturally shaped tooth that fits with your other teeth.
