What is dental bonding made of?

Bonding consists of composite-resin material. In addition, we match the color to your existing tooth shade for the most natural results.

What is the procedure for dental bonding?

Bonding is applied and sculpted onto the tooth in layers. Once we achieve the correct shape and amount, a curing light is used to harden the material. The light also gives it a polished look which adds to the natural appearance. Afterwards, some trimming may be needed to create the best look. This cosmetic procedure is usually completed in under an hour and  lasts up to 10 years. Overall, bonding can be the ideal solution for anyone interested in correcting their smile.

What should I consider before choosing this procedure?

Patients should note that bonding is color matched to their existing tooth shade. Therefore, if a patient is also considering teeth whitening, they need to whiten their teeth beforehand. Bonding does not respond to whitening agents. In addition, bonding is not as stain-resistant as veneers. Patients would need to avoid consuming staining foods and beverages.

How do I care for my teeth after the procedure?

Bonding requires regular dental hygiene maintenance. As a result, be sure to brush twice a day and floss as recommended. Avoid biting on hard food and objects. It could damage the bonding. Please contact us if you notice any chipping or fractures.
