Enjoy dental bonding for tooth repair and fillings

Dental bonding is a quicker and easier alternative to veneers. In this procedure, a thin coat of tooth-colored resin is applied to damaged teeth to repair and restore their healthy glow. It is often done to disguise an imperfection in the smile or repair a tooth that might have become chipped or cracked.

What can I expect during a dental bonding procedure?

A dental bonding procedure can usually be completed in just one appointment, and the process is relatively simple:

  1. Your dentist will use a shade guide to find the perfect resin color to match your other teeth.
  2. Your dentist will prepare your broken tooth or teeth so that the resin will stick more easily.
  3. The resin is applied and then polymerized using a special curing light.

How is dental bonding used?

Dental bonding is often used to disguise a cosmetic imperfection within the smile. That may include:

  • Chipped/cracked teeth
  • Areas of decay
  • Unusually shaped/short teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
