Dental bonding is a flexible option that addresses a variety of dental problems. Dental bonding uses a specially formulated dental polymer that can be sculpted and formed to repair damaged or misshaped teeth.
Most dental bonding procedures can be completed in a single office visit, letting us correct both structural and cosmetic problems quickly and easily.
Some common uses for dental bonding include:
- Tooth decay
- Chipped and broken teeth
- Unevenly sized or shaped teeth
- Stained or otherwise discolored teeth
- Replacement of existing amalgam fillings
About dental bonding
Dental bonding material is a specially formulated polymer that recreates the color, texture, and function of natural tooth material. Applied as a soft, putty-like substance, dental bonding allows us to sculpt the tooth precisely, no matter what the purpose of the repair. We can also build the dental bonding material up in layers when necessary, allowing us to repair even large areas of damage.
Once we have sculpted and shaped your tooth repairs, your dental bond will be cured using a specially calibrated light, which quickly and permanently hardens the bond. We can then make any minor adjustments necessary using traditional dental tools, and finally, we will polish your completed work, to create a smooth, natural looking finish.
