Tooth Bonding An Overview

Tooth bonding is an effective and economical treatment option for repairing minor tooth damage and addressing minor cosmetic dental concerns. Completed in one visit, tooth bonding can often be the perfect solution for younger patients or adult patients who would like to address concerns without the larger investment of time and money required when placing veneers.

Dr. Dechter and Dr. Moy can use tooth bonding to enhance the beauty of your smile while improving your oral health. With the skillful application of the composite resin material used for tooth bonding, we can restore, enhance and even transform the appearance of your smile. Today’s materials provide color matching and superior bonding capability for a beautiful result that will be made for your smile and adjusted for a comfortable fit.

Although not considered a permanent restoration, tooth bonding can last for 10 or more years with good oral hygiene and regular dental care. Tooth bonding can treat:

  • Tooth chips and cracks
  • Tooth irregularities, misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Broken teeth

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding process is similar in many ways to a dental filling and completed in one visit. As needed, patients can be made comfortable using a local anesthetic.

The first step is to prepare the tooth or teeth by carefully etching the surface so the bonding material can adhere securely and smoothly. Once ready, your dentist will apply the composite resin and carefully sculpt it into place for a natural appearance. The final step is to seal the surface using a special light and polish it so that it blends with your smile.
