Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a special dental resin to reshape and restore your teeth. Dr. Pham will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to your tooth, then shape it and sculpt it until it looks just like a part of your natural tooth structure.
Bonding can cover up most cosmetic flaws including minor chips, gaps in your teeth, stained teeth, and small or misshapen teeth. Bonding is very versatile and a great alternative to other more invasive cosmetic procedures.
Dental bonding is totally non-invasive. Unlike veneers, no enamel must be removed to prepare for your treatment, which means dental bonding is reversible and causes no permanent changes to your tooth structure.
This means that the process is entirely pain-free! Bonding also offers fast results. We can treat one or more teeth in just a single appointment at SmileSpot, which makes this treatment ideal if you want to improve your smile quickly for an upcoming event. This treatment has a relatively long lifespan, and you can expect your bonded teeth to last 7-10 years or longer with proper oral hygiene and care.
The process of dental bonding is fast and non-invasive, usually taking only about 30-60 minutes per tooth. Because of this, most patients opt to have multiple teeth bonded in a single appointment.
To begin, Dr. Pham will prepare your teeth using a special solution that roughens your enamel, which allows the dental resin to bond tightly to your tooth. Next, he will apply the tooth-colored resin, then mold and sculpt it into the proper overall shape. The resin will be hardened with a UV light, and Dr. Pham will refine the shape until it looks exactly as desired. Once your tooth looks perfect, the process is complete!
