What exactly is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding uses composite material to enhance your existing smile. Oftentimes, little to no anesthetic is required to place the bonding, so the procedure is comfortable and quick for you. Bonding can last as long as 10 years, which is ideal for patients who want a long-lasting, durable restoration option. Bonding can correct a range of minor imperfections on the front of your teeth, and provide you with a gorgeous, even smile that you can feel proud to show off. The composite used for dental bonding is specifically matched so that it blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Why would you need Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure, so it does not treat or help with underlying problems, such as decay or exposed inner pulps. However, for imperfections on the teeth, bonding is incredibly beneficial and can transform your smile. In fact, most smile makeovers involve bonding because of how effective it can be at altering the appearance of a patient’s smile. Some of the different problems that bonding can help with include:
What makes you a good candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is ideal for most patients, and because it lasts up to an decade, it’s especially sought-after during smile makeovers. The bonding procedure can be thought of as a way to bulk up areas of the teeth that are compromised or completely missing. Different from veneers or crowns, bonding is done in-office so you do not have to come back in once the restoration is made by a lab. The bonding material itself is matched perfectly with your existing teeth, providing a natural look that you can feel proud of when smiling. Bonding is done by Dr. Bassiri using expert techniques to create a natural, beautiful finish.
What can you expect when having Dental Bonding done?
Dental bonding typically requires little to no local anesthetic to have done. You’ll come into the office and have an exam prior to the actual procedure. This allows Dr. Bassiri to examine the teeth that need bonding, and to devise a plan specific to your smile goals and needs. The teeth are prepared for the bonding material using a curing agent. The composite is then poured onto the teeth and carefully shaped into place. Once Dr. Bassiri is happy with the way that the bonding looks, the area will be cured using a special curing light. This hardens the composite material into place, and provides you with an even, uniform smile. You can expect the bonding to last for up to a decade before it’ll need to be redone and replaced. Bonding material is the same that is used for a composite filling, so you can expect a realistic-looking restoration that transforms your smile. We provide this procedure in a way that is comfortable for you, providing you with the smile you’ve always wanted to have. Bonding is often more cost-effective than other cosmetic procedures, so it is a go-to for people wanting to change the look of their teeth without the worry that they are spending a lot of money to do so.
