What is tooth bonding?

Teeth bonding, or dental composite bonding, is a cosmetic dental procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth and restore a beautiful smile. A composite resin, which is a hard plastic material, is applied to the tooth and hardened with a curing ultraviolet light. The material used is tooth-colored, and it’s the same material used in composite dental fillings. It blends with your other teeth to produce a natural-looking, aesthetic appearance.

Some ways tooth bonding can improve your smile are:

  • Repairing chipped teeth
  • Teeth bonding for gaps
  • Adding length to a tooth that’s shorter than the others
  • Correcting discolored teeth

Our tooth bonding dentists can help you develop an effective treatment plan that will help you regain and maintain your smile.

Who is a good candidate for cosmetic bonding?

Ideal candidates for tooth bonding are those that are happy with the overall color and appearance of their teeth, but simply need a tooth repaired that’s discolored, damaged, or oddly shaped.

Minor damage and misshapen teeth

Tooth bonding is ideal for those who have generally healthy teeth but have incurred slight damage, like a chipped front tooth, or a visible tooth that has a shape or length that’s unaesthetic. That’s why dental bonding of front teeth with minor damage is extremely common. A major break in a tooth, however, often needs to be treated with a crown or by replacing the tooth completely with a dental implant.

Localized tooth discoloration

While tooth bonding can address discoloration in a single tooth, those with widespread discoloration should consider getting their teeth professionally whitened prior to bonding a tooth, since the bonding material cannot be whitened once applied.

Patients that are NOT ideal for dental bonding include those with:

  • Major damage to teeth
  • Severe tooth decay
  • Extremely discolored teeth
  • Grinding or clenching habits

The only way to know for sure if you’re a good candidate for tooth bonding is to get a professional evaluation and diagnosis. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, we’re here to help! At Brimfield Family Dentistry, we offer comprehensive tooth repair treatments.

What’s the process for dental bonding?

The first step in the tooth bonding process is selecting a color for the composite resin so that it matches your tooth color. Then, the bond is prepared and the color is compared visually to your existing tooth color.

The surface of your tooth is made rough and textured so that the bonding material adheres properly. The resin is applied to the tooth where it is molded and shaped until it both repairs the tooth’s damage and looks aesthetically pleasing.

Once the resin is molded appropriately, the dentist will use a special UV light to expedite the resin’s drying process.

Dental Bonding FAQs

How long does tooth bonding last?

The typical lifespan of a bonded tooth can be anywhere between three and 10 years after treatment. Discoloration can occur if you smoke or regularly drink coffee, soda, or red wine.

Is dental bonding painful?

The tooth bonding process is typically painless. Only the surface of the tooth is generally being worked with, and the treatment usually requires no numbing or anesthesia.
