Bonding Q & A

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is an in-office process involving the application of tooth-colored resin. Downtown Dental Studio provides dental bonding to alter and improve the shape and look of your tooth and conceal wide spaces between your teeth. Dental bonding can also protect any exposed tooth roots.

If one tooth is too short, dental bonding is a great solution that can be used to change the length of your tooth, so it’s longer and fits in beautifully with the rest of your teeth.

If you have minor tooth damage or teeth misalignment, dental bonding could be the right choice for more minor cosmetic dental concerns and flaws.

How does dental bonding work?

Dental bonding is a fairly simple process that typically only takes around 30-60 minutes for each tooth.

Your dentist uses a shade guide to determine the best composite resin color that matches to your natural tooth. Unless the bonding is used to fill a decayed tooth, anesthesia isn’t typically necessary.

Your dentist slightly roughens the tooth surface and applies a conditioning liquid to allow the bonding agent to properly and securely adhere to your tooth.

Your dentist smooths and molds the composite resin onto your teeth before applying special dental laser light to harden the resin. For the final step, your dentist trims the resin to obtain the best possible shape before polishing the resin, so it blends in perfectly with the rest of your natural teeth.

What are the advantages of dental bonding?

Downtown Dental Studio offers dental bonding as a convenient, quick, minimally invasive, and more affordable dental solution.

If you properly take care of your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene, dental bonding can last anywhere from three to 10 years or longer. There isn’t any special care required. You continue to brush twice a day and floss once daily as normal.

Dental bonding is specifically designed to act and feel like your natural teeth. It’s still important that you take care to avoid damaging your dental bonding. Avoid chewing on especially hard items and clean your teeth regularly.

Dental bonding works well for minor imperfections requiring significantly less removal of tooth enamel.
