The cosmetic dentistry world can be overwhelming if you’re not sure what procedure will most benefit you and your needs. If you’re looking into fixing any part of your smile, you should consider dental bonding as one of your options.

What is it?

Dental bonding is pretty simple. Your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to the affected areas of your teeth, and then mold and shape the resin to match the natural look and shape of your teeth. It’s a very simple procedure that can often be completed in a single appointment.

How does it happen?

You’ll need a consultation appointment to determine how your affected teeth will be fixed, but this generally doesn’t take too long. Once the plan is in place, you’ll visit your dentist for the bonding.

Your tooth has to be prepared first – cleaned so the resin will adhere properly – then the resin is shaped to look like your teeth.
Then, the resin is polished until it matches the rest of your teeth.

Dental bonding is one of the more affordable cosmetic dentistry options, which is one reason why it’s so popular. It’s also quick, but it doesn’t offer the same durability or long-lasting efficacy as implants or bridges.
