Dental bonding is a special resin composite that adheres to your teeth and becomes as hard as your own enamel. Bonding is an easy and effective treatment that’s completed in a single visit and provides natural-looking results at an affordable price.
Stained, gapped, chipped or misaligned teeth can be bonded to give you a reshaped smile.
We use a color guide that allows us to choose the shade of composite resin that best matches the color of your natural teeth.
The procedure begins with roughing up your enamel. The rough surface helps the composite resin to better adhere to your teeth.
Next, a liquid is applied to the teeth that enable the material to stick. We then apply the composite resin and shape it.
An ultraviolet light dries the material. Finally, the composite resin is given final touch-ups and polished.
No need for a local anesthetic, which means no needles.
We preserve the most amount of your natural tooth structure.
Is also one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments out there.
Choose a color that best matches your actual teeth.
Bonding does not have any serious risks associated with it. However, composite resin material is not as strong as your actual teeth so it can chip or break. Taking care to avoid chewing on ice, your pen, or your fingernails can help to avoid this issue.
There are several shades of composite resin available, which allows us to choose a color that best matches your actual teeth. The procedure itself is non-invasive. There is no need for a local anesthetic, which means no needles. It only takes one appointment to complete the procedure. Because there is only a minimal adjustment of your tooth enamel, we can preserve the most amount of your natural tooth structure. This can help to avoid potential complications such as tooth sensitivity. Bonding is also one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments out there.
There are some things that you should keep in mind when considering bonding as a cosmetic solution. The material is not as strong as your natural teeth, which leaves it more prone to chipping or breaking than other solutions such as veneers or crowns. Composite resin can stain, and it cannot be whitened.
It is not an ideal solution for covering bigger cosmetic issues because it is at a greater risk of cracking. In some rare instances, the entire bonding can come detached from your tooth.
The smile of your dreams!
