What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is an easy, painless, and affordable cosmetic dentistry option. During this treatment, your dentist uses a composite mixture to fill in cracks, chips, or other flaws in your smile. This mixture is actually similar to what we use for composite fillings so it looks and feels like real teeth. Unlike composite fillings, though, we generally don’t have to remove any enamel for this treatment.

First, our dental team will create a composite resin that matches the color of your smile perfectly. Then, we will roughen your tooth and apply a bonding component so the composite stays in place. Next, we apply the mixture in layers, hardening the composite with a professional light. After we fit the shape, length, and appearance of your tooth, we’ll polish your tooth to ensure a smooth fit.

As you can see, dental bonding is an easy and painless treatment. Additionally, we can often reshape your tooth in just one hour. If you think that it can fix your smile and build your confidence, visit us at Marlen Elite Dental Wellness.

Who Needs Dental Bonding?

If you want to make any improvements to your smile, small or large, talk to Dr. Martirossian first. Since the treatment is easy and affordable, we try to utilize it as much as possible to improve the smiles and lives of our patients.

With dental bonding, we can improve smiles that have:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Misshapen or uneven teeth
  • Discolored teeth or teeth with dark spots
  • Gapped teeth
  • Short teeth that need length
  • Metal fillings that need replacement
  • Receding gums or teeth that show roots

Whether you have a small chip or a big gap between your teeth you can get your smile back on track in one quick dental appointment.

Improve Your Smile

If you want to improve your smile without the commitment of a permanent procedure, dental bonding is the perfect solution for you. In fact, if you don’t like your treatment, we can reverse the procedure. Additionally, we can always add more or less composite material to make your smile exactly how you want it. Another positive of dental bonding is that it’s more affordable than other cosmetic dentistry treatments. Plus, your visit for dental bonding will be quick and easy.

Dental bonding is a long-lasting treatment. Our patients report that treatments last up to ten years. However, if you do want a longer-term solution, you might want to consider porcelain veneers or Lumineers instead.
