All You Want to Know About Dental Bonding


Have you been considering some form of cosmetic dental treatment, but are overwhelmed with your options? Perhaps you have even heard great things about dental bonding, but do not know what it entails or what it can accomplish. Learning more about dental bonding is a great way to determine if it could solve your smile concerns. Remember, cosmetic dentistry means there is no reason to settle for a smile you’re not proud to show off.

Can dental bonding fix gaps between my teeth?

Yes. Dental bonding is able to effectively correct a number of cosmetic concerns with your smile, including minor gaps between the teeth. This makes dental bonding a great alternative to those who are not able to afford or willing to go through traditional orthodontic treatment.

Will it hide permanent teeth stains?

Yes. Dental bonding can cover even permanent, dark stains and discolorations. If whitening products have been ineffective, dental bonding could help.

How long does dental bonding take?

One of the many benefits of dental bonding is that it can be completed in very little time. In fact, we are able to complete the treatment for most patients in as little as one hour, during a single office visit.

Will I be able to enjoy the results for a long time?

Yes. With proper care, dental bonding can last many years. That said, the composite material used for bonding is more fragile than the dental porcelain used for veneers and crowns, so it is not ideal for patients who are involved in high contact sports. It is also less stain-resistant than your natural enamel, and porcelain, so smokers may not be satisfied with the duration of the results.

Is dental bonding expensive?

No. Dental bonding is actually quite affordable, and it is less expensive than many other cosmetic procedures.
