What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment designed to reshape and restore your smile. It can treat a wide variety of issues including chipped teeth, stained and discolored teeth, uneven and misshapen teeth, and gaps between your teeth. Along with treatments like bonding & shaping (enameloplasty) and teeth whitening, bonding can be used to completely restore your smile, even if you’re on a tight budget.

Dental bonding is completely non-invasive, so it’s great for patients with dental anxiety or who don’t want to have a layer of their enamel removed for veneers.

How It Works: The Dental Bonding Process

Cleaning & roughening the tooth

To begin, your tooth will be cleaned by Dr. Mark Evans. Then, he will apply a very mild acid compound to the surface of the tooth. This acid “etches” the tooth, roughening the surface slightly. This is done to help the bonding material attach firmly to the enamel, and does not harm or damage the tooth in any way.

Applying, shaping & hardening resin

Once the tooth has been properly prepared and roughened, Dr. Evans will choose a tooth-colored composite resin that matches your tooth perfectly. Then, he will apply the resin to the tooth using special dental tools, molding it to restore the shape of your tooth. Several layers of resin may be used, and each layer is hardened with a UV light before the next layer is added.

Final trimming & polishing

Once the overall shape of the tooth looks right, Dr. Evans will trim away excess resin with a dental drill and adjust the bonded tooth to ensure it fits into your bite properly. When everything looks perfect, the tooth will be polished one final time. This process takes about 30-60 minutes, and will be repeated if you’re having multiple teeth bonded in one appointment.
