Dental bonding can be used to repair gaps, chips, and cracks in your teeth for a healthier, more even smile.
How does cosmetic dental bonding work?
Dental bonding is a non-invasive process. It involves applying a natural looking composite resin material onto the tooth to cover up small cracks or gaps. The material is then hardened, smoothed and polished. The whole process is typically completed in a single appointment, lasting one or two hours.
Little or no drilling or anesthetic is required for cosmetic bonding, and several teeth can even be bonded during a single dental appointment. Additionally, dental bonding is one of the most inexpensive ways to achieve a great smile!
Depending on your needs, bonding can help correct many different smile problems, such as stubborn stains, gaps between the teeth, or chipped or uneven teeth.
How are dental bonds cared for? Do they look and feel natural?
For about couple of weeks, you will go through an adjustment period during which you'll get used to new shape and size of your teeth. After that, as long as you continue to brush and floss daily and visit the dentist at prescribed intervals, your dental bonds will last you for many years to come, looking and feeling just like your natural teeth.
