The bonding process begins with a tooth-colored resin (plastic), which is applied to existing teeth, then hardened so it is “bonded” to the patient’s tooth, this restores the appearance of the teeth and smile. Dentists select a resin color that is closest to the patient’s other teeth, resulting in a natural-looking smile with minimal intrusion, and surgery is not required-often it is even done without anesthesia, unless the bonding is to fill a cavity.
The procedure can be completed in one visit and requires little to no alteration to the healthy portion of the tooth structure.
Most patients choose dental bonding when they need a quick and easy solution for small cosmetic improvements to their smile. For example, patients may choose bonding for smile enhancements such as:
Unlike other major dental procedures, dental bonding is simple and can often be completed in about 30 to 60 minutes for each tooth, depending on the patient and the procedure. It is also advantageous because it requires very little advance preparation, and generally doesn’t require any surgical procedures, anesthesia, or laboratory work. With proper oral care, bonding can last several years and only require minor touch-ups to keep it in top condition.
