What is dental bonding?

Cosmetic dental bonding refers to an in-office dental procedure where your WPD Dental Group dentist carefully applies a tooth-colored resin to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned.

How does dental bonding work?

Dental bonding can be completed in just one office visit and it usually takes 30-60 minutes per tooth.

Using a shade guide, your WPD Dental Group dentist determines the best composite resin color that matches your natural tooth. Anesthesia isn’t typically necessary unless the bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth.

To prepare your tooth, your dentist lightly etches the surface and applies a special bonding liquid. After the liquid sets, your dentist applies a plastic resin and sculpts the resin into the desired shape.

Once the resin has set, your WPD Dental Group dentist uses advanced dental tools to trim, smooth, and polish the resin to give you natural-looking results that beautifully blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Why would I choose dental bonding?

WPD Dental Group provides dental bonding for several reasons, such as to:

  • Conceal wide spaces between teeth
  • Improve the shape and look of your tooth
  • Protect any exposed tooth roots
  • Change your tooth color
  • Restore fractured and broken teeth
  • Repair root abrasions
  • Replace unwanted silver fillings
  • Change the length of your tooth if you have one tooth that’s too short

Dental bonding can help restore your front and back teeth. It might be the best choice if you have minor cosmetic dental flaws and concerns, such as minor tooth damage or teeth misalignment.

What advantages does dental bonding offer?

WPD Dental Group provides dental bonding due to the many benefits. Dental bonding is quick, convenient, minimally invasive, and affordable. It can be a great alternative to veneers.

Dental bonding can enhance the appearance of your tooth and is specially designed to feel and act just like your natural teeth.

Plastic resin is strong and durable, but it isn’t quite as strong as your natural tooth enamel. You should take care to avoid damaging your dental bonding and avoid chewing on especially hard items.

If you maintain good oral hygiene and take care of your teeth, dental bonding can last 3-5 years or longer. Make sure you brush twice daily and floss once daily as normal.
