What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a simple procedure during which your dentist in Columbia will use a composite resin (the same material used in tooth-colored fillings) to transform one or more teeth. If you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, misshapen, or have unsightly gaps in between your teeth, you might be a good candidate for dental bonding. The material can be color-matched to blend right in with your existing tooth enamel and even make the surrounding teeth appear brighter.

How Dental Bonding Works

First, we will make sure the bonding material matches your existing enamel. Then, we will apply the highly malleable substance to your teeth and use it to sculpt your teeth into the desired shape and size. Next, we will harden the resin with a curing light. Finally, we’ll polish your teeth and check your bite to make sure that your bonded teeth function properly. As long as you take proper care of your bonded teeth, they can last anywhere from three to ten years before the bonding material needs to be replaced.
