Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned.

Dental Bonding in Bedford, Bloomington, Geist, and Greenwood, IN

Dental bonding is a procedure aimed at improving the appearance of a tooth. Initially, the tooth’s surface undergoes gentle etching, followed by the application of a bonding liquid to aid in adhesion. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is meticulously applied and shaped to attain the desired form. After the resin cures, your dentist will trim, refine, and polish it to ensure a seamless blend with your natural tooth appearance.

  • Should I get dental veneers or dental bonding?

    Dental bonding and veneers are both used to fix broken teeth or cavities, they can also be used to improve the general look of healthy teeth. Veneers are applied to the entire front surface of the tooth, while bonding is only applied to a small portion. Both bonding and veneers can help improve your smile and adjust spacing. However, in most cases, dental bonding is used for emergencies. If you have a cracked or fractured tooth, bonding is the quickest way to repair it and only requires one appointment. However, though veneers take more time to get, they provide a stronger, longer-lasting solution.

  • What is dental bonding?

    Bonding is used to repair or improve the appearance of a tooth. It’s usually used in cosmetic procedures to cover chipped teeth but can also be used as an alternative to fillings, to close up spaces, or to fill in gaps.

  • How long does dental bonding last?

    Dental bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers, but the application should last approximately ten years if you are taking proper care of your teeth. This means avoiding hard candy, ice cubes, and similar substances that can break down and crack the composite material. The length of the application is also affected by the area that was bonded, for example, an imperfect bite or grinding your teeth can cause the composite to break down faster.
