Chipped, cracked, misarranged, or discolored teeth can wreak havoc on your smile. Dental bonding is one of the best treatments to repair these issues and restore your smile. Essentially, dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure through which a composite resin with a color similar to that of a tooth is applied to your teeth and strengthened with a special light. The bonding material fills chips, cracks, and other flaws to enhance the appearance of your teeth.
At Wojtowicz Dental, we’re experts in dental bonding and can fix any dental flaws to help you achieve your desired smile.
Dental bonding was invented in 1949 and utilized acrylic resin to bond to the tooth.
Using a shade guide, Dr. Emily will choose a composite resin material that blends with the color of your existing teeth. She will then etch the surface of your teeth to create a rough texture. She may also apply a conditioning liquid to help the bonding material adhere to your tooth.
Dr. Emily will apply the composite resin material to your tooth, mold it, and smoothen the surface to the desired shape. She will then use a special curing light to harden the composite resin, enabling it to stick to your tooth surface.
Once the composite resin is bonded to your teeth, your dentist will make final adjustments or changes before polishing your tooth to give it a more natural look. The entire tooth bonding procedure can be completed in one visit, and it takes about thirty to sixty minutes per tooth.
Dental bonding is a painless procedure that takes just a single office visit, making it an excellent choice for easy and quick repairs.
Dental bonding is a less invasive cosmetic procedure that can transform the appearance of your smile. Also, unlike many cosmetic treatments, teeth bonding is reversible.
Dental bonding won't break the bank and is relatively cheaper than other cosmetic dentistry treatments like veneers or crowns.
Dental bonding is the most versatile cosmetic treatment. It conceals multiple cosmetic flaws, including gaps, cracks, chips, and discoloration, in just a single appointment.
The composite resin material is relatively durable and can last for several years. It can last between 5 and 10 years with proper care.
Receiving dental bonding is a painless procedure, and you won't need pain medications.
The cost of dental bonding varies based on the material used, the complexity of the procedure, and the location of the dentist.
