What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of your teeth. This material is then shaped and hardened using a curing light, bonding it to your teeth and improving their appearance. Bonding is highly versatile and can be used to correct a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

Our Bonding Process

Dr. Kerbaugh will first prepare your tooth by selecting a shade of resin that matches the color of your natural teeth. Next, we apply the bonding material (resin) to your teeth and mold it into the desired shape. The curing process is next. A curing light hardens the resin, bonding it to your teeth. Finally, we polish the bonded teeth to give them a smooth, natural-looking finish.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will others be able to tell my tooth was bonded?

It’s unlikely. That’s because the composites used for tooth bonding look like natural teeth.

Is this cosmetic procedure similar to veneers?

No, there are some differences between the two. Veneers are thin coverings placed on the front of a tooth to conceal any front tooth flaws. It often involves enamel removal from the tooth for veneer application. Furthermore, veneers provide a permanent solution, contrasting with the temporary nature of dental bonding.

Does a tooth repaired with bonding need to be cleaned in any special way?

No, maintain your usual dental hygiene practice of brushing twice daily, flossing every day, and scheduling dentist appointments twice a year.
