You don’t have to break the bank to change your smile with dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a composite resin material directly to your teeth. Bonding can remedy several teeth imperfections, including:
This is a fantastic way to improve the appearance and resilience of your teeth if veneers are out of reach. While it’s not as long-lasting as veneers, cosmetic dental bonding is an affordable treatment that can return your smile to its former glory.
Dental bonding yields the following benefits:
Unlike veneers, cosmetic dental bonding can be done in just one appointment, mainly if repairing one or a few teeth. Bonding involves little to no preparation of your teeth — just arrive at your appointment having flossed and brushed your teeth. If your teeth haven’t been cleaned professionally, have it done first before the procedure.
Dr. Maegan Elam selects a color that matches your teeth before preparing the bonding resin. The material is putty-like, meaning it can be molded into the intended shape. With cosmetic bonding, you don’t need anesthesia unless the damage on the tooth is near a nerve.
The bonding process starts with roughening the surface of your tooth, after which we apply a conditioning gel to enable the resin to stick to it. Then, Dr. Elam applies the resin, reshapes it, and uses UV light to cure and harden it. Finally, we smooth out and polish the repaired tooth until it looks and feels natural.
