Dental Bonding Q & A
What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple cosmetic treatment that utilizes a specialized tooth-colored material to fill in spaces between teeth or correct minor breaks or chips. Not only is dental bonding a fast and affordable way to restore your teeth, but it’s also beneficial because it:
- Blends in seamlessly with your teeth
- Whitens stained or discolored teeth
- Protects exposed tooth roots
- Stabilizes loose teeth
Composite bonding is the top choice for fillings if you have a cavity and it even serves as a natural-looking replacement for those old silver fillings.
What happens during a dental bonding treatment?
When you come to SmileBoutique for your dental bonding treatment, you can expect to feel comfortable and relaxed as soon as you walk in the door. Depending on the location of your bonding treatment, you may or may not need to be numbed with a small injection beforehand.
Your practitioner uses a dental drill to reshape your tooth to create a smooth platform to bond the composite material. Once your tooth is prepped, they carefully apply the bonding resin and use a specialized light to harden the composite material.
The final step involves reshaping your treated tooth (or teeth) with the bonding material in place and ensuring all surfaces are entirely smooth. You leave the office that very day with your new and improved smile.
Many dental bonding treatments from SmileBoutique can be completed in as little as 30-60 minutes. You can easily schedule your service during your lunch hour.
How long does dental bonding last?
The team at SmileBoutique is committed to ensuring your beautiful new dental bonding treatment lasts as long as possible. Most composite bonding treatments last anywhere from three to ten years before your teeth need to be touched up or replaced with a new bonding service.
But with good oral hygiene and twice-a-year dental cleanings at SmileBoutique, your dental bonding treatment can certainly last even longer.
