Tooth Bonding An Overview
Dental bonding is a great way to improve the appearance of your smile without a long-term commitment. Dental bonding is a malleable material that offers a natural-looking solution for restoring discolored or mildly damaged teeth. Many younger patients or patients looking for an affordable cosmetic treatment choose dental bonding as an economical alternative to porcelain veneers.
Dental bonding is highly durable and can last up to 10 years without any special maintenance or repair. Good oral hygiene and routine dental health exams can help keep your bonding in optimal condition. Unlike porcelain veneers, dental bonding does not require extensive removal of the tooth structure. Bonding is considered reversible and can be replaced with more a permanent restorative or cosmetic dental treatment option later on.
Dental bonding is used to address:
- Gaps in teeth
- Discolored tooth
- Chipped or cracked tooth
- Broken teeth
- Mishappen tooth

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
Dental bonding is a quick, effective and minimally invasive procedure. Patients are able to return to the daily routine immediately after their treatment and enjoy instant results. Dental bonding is a temporary solution for cosmetic concerns.
Your Palmetto Smiles dentist will remove a minimal amount of tooth structure to make space for the dental bonding.
Bonding is placed directly onto the prepared surface of the tooth and is molded into shape by your dentist. The material is color matched for a natural result. Once the patient has approved the result your dentist will harden the bonding using a special light. The tooth is polished for a natural shine.
Patients with dental bonding are able to brush and floss as normal. Bonding may require maintenance or repair within their span of use. Patients seeking a more permanent solution may consider porcelain veneers. Your dentist will explain the benefits of all of your treatment options so you can make an informed decision about your oral health.
