When a patient wishes to improve the appearance of their smile, our doctor may recommend dental bonding. Dental bonding is the process by which our dentists apply a composite resin material to the teeth and harden it in place. Our dentists may recommend dental bonding to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Improve the shade of discolored teeth
- Close spaces between teeth
- Improve the length of teeth
- Improve the shape of teeth
- Protect exposed tooth roots
Dental bonding is the easiest way to improve the appearance of your smile; it is also the least expensive. Dental veneers and dental crowns must be constructed in a lab and take at least two appointments to place. However, dental bonding can be done in just office visit, unless multiple teeth are being treated. Dental bonding does not require as much tooth enamel removal as dental veneers and dental crowns do. This means that your long-term oral health is preserved. Dental bonding is nearly painless and anesthesia is not usually needed.
