Dental Bonding Q & A

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment using toothlike material to restore the appearance of your tooth. The dentists at Gentle Touch PC apply composite resin to your tooth’s surface and fuse the resin to the enamel with special equipment. 

Dental bonding can cover over or fill in areas on the tooth that don’t look right. Once bonded to the enamel, the material embodies the strength that rivals your natural tooth.

What is dental bonding used for?

Dr. Rodrguez use dental bonding to cover up or fill in areas that have imperfections. The team often use dental bonding for the following purposes:

  • Narrow the gaps between teeth
  • Cover discolored teeth
  • Restore chipped or broken teeth
  • Make crooked or misshapen teeth appear straight

Dental bonding is one of the most inexpensive, accessible solutions for your cosmetic needs. Your dentist may suggest bonding as a more affordable alternative to veneers and other aesthetic solutions.

What are the advantages of dental bonding?

Dental bonding allows you to attain a more appealing smile, many times without the need for expensive, time-consuming treatments. For example, if you have a gap between your teeth, you may be able to fix it with a simple bonding procedure rather than something more involved like braces. If you just want to make a few small tweaks, you may be able to achieve them with bonding.

The procedure for applying bonding is also rather quick, painless, and accessible. The dentists at Gentle Touch PC always have the materials readily available in the office, unlike many other procedures that require special designs from a lab.

Your dentist can match the bonding agents to the color of your other teeth, so they blend right in. The bonding process doesn’t hurt or require preparation, so many adults prefer this solution for its convenience.

Finally, dental bondings also have similar strength and durability of your natural enamel so that you can eat your normal foods. They’re easy to take care of too — just floss and brush like normal.
