How Dental Bonding Works
In theory, tooth bonding is a simple procedure. Unfortunately, not all bonding is equal. Because bonding requires a certain amount of artistic skill and precision, dental bonding can vary in its attractiveness. Our doctors are both artists and perfectionists so you can be sure the results of any procedure are subtle, attractive and strong. We begin by carefully matching the tooth bonding material to the tooth to which it will be applied. If you want your teeth to appear whiter, we may begin with tooth whitening to get your teeth to their desired shade and match the bonding material to that shade. This custom blending is done by hand right here in our office and requires an understanding of color depth and shading. Once we have a range of shades to apply to your teeth, we sculpt the dental bonding material into place on your tooth, mimicking your tooth’s contouring and shading. You’ll leave the office that day with a great looking smile!
A Few Important Reminders about Dental Bonding
There’s no doubt that dental bonding can make an average smile beautiful, this procedure may not be the right choice for every patient. In deciding whether or not bonding is the best choice for you, here are a few considerations to keep in mind:
- Bonding material will need to be replaced every few years.
- Bonding material can be stained just like your natural teeth, so habits such as smoking or drinking too much coffee or red wine, for example, will stain bonded teeth.
- Bonding material can be damaged, so if you habitually chew ice or eat hard candy, your bonded teeth can be at risk.
Talk to your dentist to determine whether dental bonding is the right choice for you.
