What Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a dental procedure that fixes minor cosmetic imperfections in your teeth. The Diamond Dental team paints a thin layer of tooth-colored composite over one or more of your teeth to improve or restore your smile. The composite permanently bonds to your teeth, which is why it’s called “bonding.”

What Is Bonding Used For?

The experienced team at Diamond Dental uses bonding to enhance your smile in a number of ways, such as:

  • Restoring teeth that are decayed, discolored, cracked, or chipped
  • Filling in small gaps between teeth
  • Changing the size or shape of a tooth

Bonding is also commonly used for non-cosmetic purposes, such as treating cavities or protecting tooth roots that have become exposed from gum recession.

Why Should I Get Bonding?

Bonding is one of the least invasive methods for fixing damaged teeth. Unlike crowns, bridges, or veneers, bonding doesn’t require you to remove any enamel from your teeth, unless you’re clearing out tooth decay. Bonding is also a more cost-effective solution for fixing damaged teeth.

The downsides of bonding are that it doesn’t last as long as other restoration options, is less stain-resistant, and is more prone to chipping.

Because of these pros and cons, the Diamond Dental team recommends bonding for correcting minor cosmetic imperfections in teeth that are in low areas of bite pressure, like your front teeth.

What Is The Process For Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a pretty quick and easy procedure. Your Diamond Dental dentist can get you all set in one 30-60 minute office visit that doesn’t require any anesthesia.

First, your dentist uses a shade guide to pick a color for your composite resin that matches the color of your natural teeth. Your dentist then prepares your tooth by etching its surface. This provides a more absorbent surface for a conditioning liquid that helps the bonding material stick.

After your tooth is prepared, your dentist applies a putty-like resin and shapes it, so it blends in with your natural tooth.

Once everything is properly shaped, your dentist shines an ultraviolet light on the putty to harden it and sends you on your way with an instantly improved smile.

The bonding process is very minimally invasive, so you can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure without having to worry about recovery or downtime.

Dr. V and Dr. Wang are both the most considerate, gentle, and caring dentists I have ever met. They both care so deeply for their patients. Very understanding and would do anything for anyone. Both assistants are wonderful as well. Always smiling, cheerful, and brilliant. Before coming to Diamond Dental I was petrified of any dentist I went to. Being here with them erases the fear. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

Dr. V and Jorge are so incredibly nice! The practice is very clean and the front office staff are friendly and efficient. They gave me a topical numbing ointment on my gums before starting the cleaning which was really thoughtful. They also recommended a bunch of restaurants in the area to try. I'm looking forward to my next appointment!
