How dental bonding works
Also called cosmetic bonding, dental bonding is a customized treatment that Dr. Ferrari performs chairside to fix a variety of imperfections, restoring both the function and appearance of teeth. Using a tooth-colored composite resin material that is shaded to match your existing tooth color, Dr. Ferrari molds it onto your teeth in a natural tooth shape. Then, a special light is used to cure it for long-lasting results.
Dental bonding is a great alternative to more extensive treatments such as porcelain veneers, orthodontics, or crowns, and can be used in the following circumstances:
- Teeth bonding for gaps – if you have one or more gaps between your teeth, dental bonding can be used to fill in the space for natural-looking results
- Bonding to reshape your teeth – whether one or more teeth is an odd shape compared to others or all of your teeth seem too short or lack uniformity, dental bonding can be used to make a more symmetrical, attractive smile
- Chipped front tooth bonding – accidents and tooth grinding can lead to chips and breaks in teeth; depending on the size of the chip, dental bonding can be a great way to restore the natural shape of your tooth
- Brightening discolored teeth – permanent stains or discolorations can dramatically impact the appearance of your smile; with bonding, we can cover up these stains for a bright, white smile
What to expect
Dental bonding typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. The procedure is completely comfortable and does not cause pain. No tooth enamel needs to be removed, so it is considered reversible if you wish to change your teeth with another type of procedure in the future, such as dental veneers. With good oral hygiene and taking care to avoid activities that can break or damage your teeth, such as chewing on ice, dental bonding can last for years to decades. We also provide long-lasting alternatives to bonding, such as dental crowns and veneers if you wish for a more permanent solution.
