Tooth Bonding

Tooth Bonding

Here at Dental Care of St. Joseph, your dentist is specially trained in tooth bonding techniques.

Why Choose Bonding?

Benefiting both your oral health and cosmetic appearance, bonding can be used for several purposes, including:

  • Repairing chipped or cracked teeth
  • Fixing gaps in teeth
  • Concealing discoloration

During the bonding process, your tooth color is matched. Then the bond is sculpted freehand and polished to a beautiful, natural appearance.

The Bonding Procedure

The bonding process can be completed in one visit, usually taking between 30-60 minutes to complete.

  • Initially, a shade of composite resin is matched to the shade of your teeth as closely as possible.
  • Then, an adhering liquid is applied to help the bonding material hold to your teeth.
  • Once the resin is adhered, it is smoothed to a desired shape and hardened with a high-intensity light.
  • Once hardened, some final touchups are made and the area is polished to resemble the rest of your teeth.
