What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a dental procedure that involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to one or more teeth. The dental bonding material can be used to fill in chips and cracks, restore decayed teeth, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, close gaps between teeth, make alterations in tooth shape and size, and protect exposed roots. It remains a highly popular treatment due to its adaptability and ease of application. In most cases, bonding requires only a single visit yet can provide results that last for years.

Getting Dental Bonding: What Is It Like?

At our dental office in Fontana, dental bonding is a simple and painless procedure that can usually be done in one visit. The dental bonding material will be carefully matched to the color of your natural teeth for a seamless blend. Your dentist will first roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning liquid before applying the dental bonding material. The dental bonding material will be molded and smoothed to the desired shape before being hardened with a high-intensity curing light. After you leave the dental office, you will need to avoid chewing or eating hard foods near the dental bonding area for at least 24 hours. Otherwise, patients can return to their usual routines right away, seeing immediate cosmetic benefits from their bonded teeth.

Signs Dental Bonding Is Right for You

If you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile or make minor dental corrections, dental bonding may be right for you. It is an ideal option for those who want to see cosmetic improvements that include:
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Lightening tooth coloration
  • Changing the shape of teeth
  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Filling in spaces between the gum line and teeth

How Long Do Dental Bonding Results Last?

In some cases, dental bonding results can last up to 10 years with proper dental hygiene and care. It is important to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist for regular dental check-ups in order to keep dental bonding materials in good condition. Together, these factors can not only help ensure your bonding treatment lasts as long as possible, but that you can maintain overall great oral health. Additionally, though bonding is durable, we recommend being careful when biting or chewing hard foods with treated teeth, since excessive force can damage the bonded material.
