What is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is a cosmetic treatment designed to enhance the shape or color of your teeth. The bonding solution is made of tooth-colored resin. This resin is soft and putty-like when first applied, which makes it easy to shape to perfection! Bonding is often used to fix minor chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, and irregularly-shaped teeth. Dental bonding is quick, easy, and economical. This treatment can be completed in very little time and doesn’t require the use of expensive porcelain or ceramic. Because of this, bonding is generally an inexpensive treatment option.
What is the Dental Bonding Process at Elite Smiles Dental?
To start your treatment, Dr. Holler and his team will slightly texture the surface of your tooth. This will help the resin bond to it more easily. Once your tooth is ready, Dr. Holler will place the bonding material. Because the resin is so soft and putty-like, Dr. Holler will easily be able to shape and sculpt your new bond. Once the resin is in place, we will harden it with a special curing light. Afterward, Dr. Holler will trim and polish the resin to beautify your smile and fix any cosmetic issues!
How Long Does the Bonding Procedure Take?
Dental bonding is one of the quickest, most straightforward procedures we offer. Most bonding treatments can be completed in a single visit! Depending on your goals and preferences, Dr. Holler may even be able to place, shape, and finish your bond in just an hour.
How Do I Care for My Dental Bonding?
Unfortunately, it is possible to break, crack, or chip your bonding. To prevent this, Dr. Holler recommends avoiding eating or chewing on hard substances such as ice. With proper care, your bonding will last anywhere from three to ten years.
