Bonding

Dental bonding is a special filling that can restore, reshape and rejuvenate your teeth, improving both the function and the appearance of your smile. By applying a thin layer of tooth-colored material to the front of the tooth and sculpting it like clay, your dentist may use bonding to correct:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Broken or misshapen teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Spaces between teeth

Materials for Dental Bonding

The dental bonding material is a composite resin or modifiable ceramic ┬áthat hardens and fuses to the tooth when your dentist shines a special light on it. Once in place, the bonding material is shaped to correct the specific problem at hand, colored to match your natural teeth, and polished until it’s smooth.

The dental bonding procedure takes one to two hours. Its results last about ten years.

Results of Dental Bonding

Bonded teeth look and function just like your natural teeth. The dental bonding material can be colored as well as molded, so it is often possible to match the shade of your teeth. When bonding is performed by an experienced dentist, people will not be able to tell that you’ve had cosmetic work done on your teeth- other than seeing how good your smile looks!

Whitening

Whitening may be recommended for your child after braces are finished. We recommend prescription strength strips for at-home use.
