Dental bonding is a technique that repairs small flaws and damage in a tooth by adding a small amount of tooth-colored material to the tooth and bonding it in place. Dental bonding can:
- Repair chips, tiny cavities, and small cracks.
- Close gaps between teeth.
- Whiten tooth stains.
Dental bonding can fill in damaged parts of a tooth and make it look flawless. Get your beautiful smile back with a dental bonding appointment with Dr. Rosenfeld.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dr. Rosenfeld will examine your teeth and recommend bonding if it will help you achieve your cosmetic goals and keep you healthy. Feel free to ask him questions and tell him what you want your smile to look like.
If dental bonding is the right solution, you won’t need to prepare for the service. Usually, you won’t even need anesthesia, because it’s a painless process. Your dentist will:
- Condition the tooth surface to prepare for bonding.
- Pick a color of bonding material to match your tooth color.
- Apply the bonding material.
- Shape and smooth it to match the natural tooth.
- Expose the area to a light emitter to harden the material more quickly.
- Polish it to fit in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Fixing your tooth and making it look beautiful could take 30–60 minutes. We can also repeat the process on another tooth, if you need it.
Is Dental Bonding Right for You?
Dental bonding can repair small cracks and chips and fill in some cavities, while looking like a natural tooth surface. You can also improve the color of your teeth. We can also use dental bonding for cosmetic purposes, like reshaping a tooth, elongating a tooth, or covering an area exposed by receding gums.
You might choose dental bonding because it costs less than veneers or dental crowns. It can even be covered by insurance, in some cases. Finally, it can be completed in an hour or less—often without anesthesia.
