Dental Bonding


Your teeth play many crucial roles in your mouth, biting, chewing, speaking, even maintaining the health of your jawbone. The teeth also play a critical role in the appearance of your smile. Even the most minor imperfections in your teeth can quickly drag down the quality of your smile, which can lead to a significant loss of confidence. Fortunately, small flaws can be corrected. Michael Regan, DMD Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry can help to restore the appearance of your smile with dental bonding.

Are Your Teeth Marred by Minor Imperfections?

Small flaws in your teeth do not often affect your oral health, but they can have a significant impact on the quality of your smile and your level of confidence. Imperfections that can mar the beauty of your smile include:

•  Small chips or cracks in the enamel.
•  Spacing issues, or minor gaps between your teeth.
•  Small cavities. These can impact your oral health if they are not treated promptly.
•  Oddly shaped or unusually small teeth.
•  Discoloration.


What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment designed to restore the appearance of teeth affected by minor dental imperfections. This treatment utilizes a composite resin to give your teeth a much more natural, beautiful appearance. Composite resin is a mixture of fine glass, plastic, and other materials that perfectly match the color of your natural teeth. The dental bonding material is quite versatile. It can be bent, shaped, and molded in some different ways, allowing us to reconstruct a beautiful, natural smile. With dental bonding, we can fill cracks and cavities, change the color of your teeth, and even completely reshape and fill out teeth.

The Dental Bonding Process

Dental bonding is a noninvasive, painless procedure that can often be be completed in less than an hour. First, the teeth are cleaned. Next, an acid etch is applied to the treatment areas. This acid creates a rough texture on your enamel, which aids in providing a much stronger bond between the material and the tooth surface. The acid is washed off and the teeth are dried. The composite resin is applied to the treatment areas and shaped as needed to create the perfect appearance. Once the desired appearance is achieved, a specialized light is used to cure, or dry, the material. Finally, the composite resin in polished to a smooth, beautiful finish.

Dental Bonding Benefits

There are numerous benefits associated with dental bonding.

•  The procedure is noninvasive. It is completely painless and does not require a local anesthetic.
•  The procedure is simple and quick. Restoring a natural appearance to your teeth usually takes less than an hour to complete.
•  Unlike crowns and veneers, we do not need to alter the structure of your teeth in any way. There is no need to remove any enamel from your tooth surfaces.
•  Because composite resin is tooth colored, it can effectively blend in with the surrounding tooth surfaces. No one will be able to tell that it is there.
•  Composite resin in one of the most affordable cosmetic dental treatments available. It costs less than treatments such as veneers and crowns.

If minor imperfections have affected the appearance of your smile, dental bonding can help. For more information, call Michael Regan, DMD Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry at 503-654-8283 today.
