Dental bonding solutions for improving the smile’s appearance

Enhancing the smile is easy with all of the cosmetic treatments available to patients today. Our dentist, Dr. Yvonne Caton-Hospedales of Your Smile Dental Wellness Center, is here to provide ways to improve the appearance and health of the smile. One way to do this is with the use of composite dental bonding, often called “dental bonding.”

Understanding how cosmetic bonding works

Composite resin bonding can be used to address a variety of imperfections that might impact the smile’s appearance. From gapped to chipped teeth, this material can be molded onto the tooth, cured with a special curing light, then filed and professionally polished. It looks just like natural tooth enamel when completed. The result is a natural-looking repair that will last several years with proper care.

How do I care for my tooth with dental bonding in place?

The care for a tooth that has had dental bonding is the same as it is for any other tooth in the smile. This means patients should brush and floss daily to maintain good oral hygiene. In addition, regular visits to the dentist are recommended so that any changes or concerns can be addressed right away. We follow the recommendations set forth by the American Dental Association, which encourages patients to see the dentist at least every six months for a cleaning and evaluation.

How long does it take to have dental bonding placed?

One of the most significant benefits of composite resin dental bonding is the speed at which it can be placed. The entire process, from preparation to polishing, takes approximately ten minutes and is completed in a single visit.
