How Dental Bonding Works: What to Expect
Unlike veneers or other treatments that require multiple appointments, bonding can usually be completed in just a single visit to our office and often without anesthetic. Your dentist will:
- Prepare your tooth and make sure you’re comfortable before we begin
- Mix and shade the composite bonding material to match the color of your natural teeth
- Apply the bonding material to your tooth and use a UV light to cure it
You’ll notice immediate improvements in how your teeth look and feel!
Is dental bonding permanent?
Depending on your at-home care, diet, and other factors, you can expect your dental bonding treatment to last about 5-10 years on average. Bonding on molars and locations that receive more bite force will be a little less durable.
Should I get bonding or veneers?
There are pros and cons to each. Veneers, being fully custom “shells” for your teeth, generally provide more protection and a bigger cosmetic improvement. But dental bonding treatments are more flexible and don’t require removing any natural tooth structure.
Is bonding good for my health?
Yes! Bonding has more than just cosmetic benefits. Because the material is “bonded” directly to the tooth it acts as a reinforcement, preventing chips, cracks, and small fractures from getting bigger.
We believe visiting the dentist should never feel bad.
That’s why we’ve created a practice of experienced dentists committed to all aspects of your oral health — including how your smile looks and makes you feel. You’re in good hands here!
“I had so much apprehension going into today after dealing with a large chain where I was made to feel really badly for the state of my teeth. Both the hygienist and doctor were very comforting and I walked away feeling great. I can’t say enough great things about this place and can confidently say that I will be a customer for life.”
