Dental Bonding

There’s no reason to let small cosmetic problems linger when the solution is so quick and easy. Dental bonding can restore teeth for a seamless, beautiful smile in a single visit. Our team at Bayshore Family Dental is ready to get your teeth back on track to confidently take on the day.

What is Dental Bonding Used For?

Dental Bonding is a versatile tool for repairing and sculpting teeth. It has a place in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Bonding is used to repair broken or cracked teeth, fill spacing or gaps in the bite, shape irregular teeth, and generally improve one’s appearance.

The dental bonding procedure is a quick repair method that can be completed in a single visit. The area is first cleaned and roughened to prepare the surface for a tight bond application. The resin is then added and molded to the shape of the natural teeth. We match the color of the resin to the rest of your teeth for an incredibly natural appearance. The resin is hardened with a UV curing light, and given final sculpting touches for a smooth and natural look.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding is one of the most common cosmetic procedures with many upsides:

  • Versatile: The pliable resin is effective in treating several issues, from cracks and fractures to gaps and erosion.
  • Affordable: The cost of dental bonding is among the lowest compared to other cosmetic and restorative procedures.
  • Noninvasive: Very little is done to the natural tooth enamel, making for a painless and simple procedure. If the repair area isn’t close to a nerve, local anesthesia isn’t even necessary.
  • Fast: A tooth can be bonded in a single visit for a quick, lasting repair.
  • Simple aftercare: Once the procedure is complete, you can go straight back to eating and drinking as normal with no lingering pain.

Maintaining Dental Bonding

The composite resin is durable, but not as resilient as the rest of your natural teeth. To ensure the bonding lasts as long as possible, avoid crunching ice with your teeth and habits like pen chewing. Especially if the bonding is on the front teeth, avoid opening things with your teeth – but we’d recommend that in any situation!

Practice regular brushing and flossing, and make sure to schedule regular cleanings and checkups so we can make sure your teeth and bondings are in great shape.
