What is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a favored procedure for correcting a variety of dental imperfections including:

  • Cracks or chips
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Mild tooth decay
  • Insufficient bite pressure

Dental bonding can improve the aesthetic and health of your smile almost instantly!

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Your dentist will examine the tooth in question to determine if bonding is the best course of action. If you both agree that bonding is a good solution, he will select the color of composite resin that most closely matches your smile.

Dr. Sheridan will roughen the outer layer of the tooth and apply an adhesive. He will shape the resin to fill in cracks, gaps, or other imperfections. When the bonding looks perfect, he will use a light to harden the bonding to the tooth.

The bonding process is often completely pain-free. You may be more comfortable with a local anesthetic if the case involves tooth decay or damage.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Take?

Your dental bonding can be completed in a single visit! Bonding usually only requires an hour or two. For multiple teeth, you may need to schedule more than one appointment.
