How Does Tooth Bonding Improve My Smile?

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment, which means that its purpose is to improve the appearance of your teeth. More specifically, bonding can assist with the following aesthetic concerns:

  • Amend minor tooth breakage
  • Whiten discolored teeth
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Reshape irregular teeth

If these issues sound familiar, you can ask your dentist if dental bonding will help you get the smile of your dreams. Your dentist can formulate an individualized cosmetic treatment plan for your unique needs during a consultation appointment.

What Is the Bonding Procedure Like?

If your dentist determines that tooth bonding will work for your smile, they will begin the procedure by removing a small amount of enamel from the affected teeth to prepare the area. They can provide you with a local anesthetic for optimal comfort during the procedure.

The dentist will then apply composite resin to your teeth and sculpt it according to your smile aesthetic goals. They will harden the resin with a concentrated UV light and complete the procedure with a polish for a beautiful, natural-looking finish.

How Long Will I Notice Cosmetic Benefits from Bonding?

You will experience enhancement in your smile immediately after your tooth bonding procedure. To get the best cosmetic results, your dentist will ask you to refrain from eating or drinking substances that may stain your smile for at least 48 hours.

With proper care and maintenance, you will notice benefits in your smile’s appearance for three to ten years. If the effects begin to fade, you can ask your dentist about your eligibility for touch-up treatments.
