Your teeth have some important functions. In addition to functions like biting and chewing, your teeth are also a key component in the quality of your smile. Your smile is very often the first thing that others notice about you. Any type of imperfection in your teeth, no matter how minor it might seem, can significantly affect your smile, your confidence, and the impressions you leave.

What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a quick, non-invasive, painless procedure that is performed to restore the appearance of teeth affected by minor flaws, helping to greatly enhance the beauty of your smile. The procedure uses composite resin to achieve these goals. Composite resin is made from a mixture of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. It is a tooth-colored material, meaning that it can blend in perfectly with the surrounding tooth enamel. No one will be able to tell that your teeth have been worked on. Additionally, composite resin is extremely versatile and can be shaped and molded to meet some different needs.
Why Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding provides several incredible benefits. These include:
How Is Bonding Done?
The process for getting dental bonding is quick and simple. You only need one appointment, and the procedure typically takes about an hour or less to complete. For most, the process is done in less than 30 minutes. We start by cleaning the teeth. Next, we apply an acid etch to the areas that are going to be treated. This creates a rough texture on your tooth enamel to enhance the bond between the bonding and your teeth. The acid etch is washed off, your teeth are dried and bonding agent is applied to the tooth and cured with a special light. Next, we take the composite resin material and apply it to the targeted regions of your teeth. We shape the material as necessary to achieve a perfectly natural appearance. Once the desired shape has been achieved, we then use a special light to cure or harden, the tooth enamel. Finally, after the material has been cured, we use a specialized tool that is designed to polish the material. The material is polished to a smooth, natural, beautiful finish.
