Are you looking for a way to give your smile an upgrade? Dental bonding can be a restorative or cosmetic procedure that uses a natural tooth-colored composite resin to make small changes to the front surface of your existing teeth and is a great alternative for patients who don’t want to make the time or financial commitment associated with veneers. Through the use of a bonding agent, our team of skilled dentists can repair chipped or cracked teeth by restoring the missing portion with a custom colored filling that seamlessly blends in with the look of your existing teeth.
Dental bonding technology can also be used to adjust the shape, length or width of your natural teeth, including filling in any unsightly gaps between teeth (also known as diastema). Teeth bonding procedures are expected to provide quality results that can last for 5-10 years, depending on the level of ongoing care and avoidance of certain foods and drinks that have a tendency to cause staining.
Once you and your dentist have decided that dental bonding is the right option for you, here is what you can expect. The dental bonding procedure is relatively quick and easy and will be completed in a single visit to our St. Louis area office. Once you arrive, the impacted tooth or teeth are cleaned and prepped for the procedure before the bonding agent is used. A custom colored composite resin is then applied and hand sculpted into the desired shape by your trusted dentist. From there, a special light helps cure the resin before the new surface is smoothed and polished to create your desired look.
