Bonding with the Dentist

What is bonding? Bonding is the direct application of tooth colored material to restore or change the appearance of teeth. Layers of bonding material may be added to the fronts and the edges of teeth to change the color or the shape and size. Often times, this procedure is totally painless and doesn't require the use of local anesthetic. Teeth can be recontoured and changed to give the illusion of straight teeth without orthodontics. Bonding material is slightly thicker than toothpaste and is applied to the tooth surface in increments. It comes in a variety of shades so it can be matched to your teeth. It can also be used to change the appearance of your original tooth by applying a lighter color. It is then cured (or hardened) by a bright light, finished and polished smooth to look and feel like natural tooth. Dramatic improvements in your smile can be painlessly accomplished in just one visit. If you would like to improve the appearance of your front teeth in just one visit, quickly and easily, consider bonding!
