What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure used to restore, reshape and rejuvenate your teeth. Dental bonding is how we address individual teeth that have experienced damage breakage or trauma. Bonding will improve both the function and appearance of teeth. Dr. DeStefano will use bonding material to help blend the look and feel of the repaired tooth and make it look just like natural tooth enamel. We will sculpt a piece to repair your imperfect tooth from the bonding material. Dental bonding is used to repair chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen teeth or stained teeth or to fill in the spaces between teeth. This procedure is an affordable, quick, and painless way to restore your smile.
Dental Bonding Procedure
Applying bonding to a patient’s tooth is a 3-step process:
- Dr. DeStefano will apply an etching solution to prepare the tooth for bonding. The solution will roughen the surface of the tooth so that the bond between the tooth and plastic.
- The dentist will apply a thin layer of bonding material onto the tooth and seals it with a special light. Several layers may be necessary depending on the patient’s situation. Each layer takes a few minutes to harden.
- Dr. DeStefano sculpts the resin to the desired shape and will color it to match the patient’s teeth. Last, Dr. DeStefano will polish the teeth until smooth
