What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that involves adding more material to your teeth to reshape and sculpt them, and improve the appearance and evenness of your smile. To accomplish this, Dr. Larsen uses a special type of dental composite. This tooth-colored material is very similar to the material that’s used for dental fillings.

This material is applied to the tooth, and then is sculpted and adjusted to enhance the appearance of your smile. Depending on the situation, bonding may be used to cover up stained teeth, to restore chipped teeth, and to lengthen or widen an individual tooth, to name just a few applications.

The result is a durable, realistic, and beautiful tooth restoration. Your newly-bonded tooth will look and feel completely natural. Most patients opt to have multiple teeth bonded to restore their smiles, but this may vary depending on your needs.

What Is The Dental Bonding Process?

To begin the process, Dr. Larsen will clean your mouth and then apply a special type of acid to the teeth that are being bonded. This acid doesn’t harm your teeth at all, but roughens them up slightly. This allows the bonding to bond tightly to the tooth, enhancing the durability and longevity of the treatment.

Once the tooth has been treated, Dr. Larsen will pick out dental resin that matches the color of your natural teeth. Then, he will apply a blob of the resin to the tooth, and begin shaping it using special hand tools. When the shape looks right, he will harden the resin with UV light, then add some more resin and repeat this process.

After the tooth reaches the right overall shape and size, Dr. Larsen will then use a dental drill to trim away any extra material, and will check your bite. A few further adjustments will be made to ensure the new tooth fits into your bite perfectly.

Then, this process will be repeated if you’re having multiple teeth treated, or you’ll be sent home. It usually takes 30-60 minutes to treat each tooth, so it’s often possible to have multiple teeth treated in a single session. 

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a budget-friendly choice, since it’s cheaper than veneers yet offers similar results. It’s not quite as durable, with a lifespan of between 5-8 years, but it’s also easy to repair bonded teeth when they do fail.

In addition, bonding is reversible and non-invasive, meaning no drilling of your natural enamel is required. This makes it a good choice for patients who are anxious about dentistry, or who do not like the idea of a permanent, irreversible treatment like veneers.
