dentist discussing dental bonding with patient

Have you been looking for a way to correct your smile? You have probably heard about the extensive process and cost of veneers, but you may not have considered dental bonding as another option. Dental bonding is faster and less expensive than traditional veneers. If this sounds like just what you have been looking for, keep reading to see if it is right for you!

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is the process of applying a tooth-like resin to your natural teeth in order to correct cosmetic defects in your teeth. The procedure can fix chips, discoloration, and spacing issues.

Can It Benefit Me?

Your smile is one of your most important features. Having imperfections in your teeth can cause social anxiety and make you less likely to smile frequently. Dental bonding is a good option for anyone with minor cosmetic defects in their smile who don’t want to go through the extensive process of getting veneers.

What Is The Process?

During this process, the dentist will first clean the surface of your teeth. They will then match the resin as closely to your tooth shade as possible. Once they have a match, they will apply the resin to your teeth and build up the layers until the desired look is achieved. Each layer will have to be cured with a special light.

Finally, they will shape and smooth the material, so that it looks as close to your natural tooth as possible. Most of the time, this entire process will be completed in one office visit.
