What Is Dental Bonding?

To repair cracked teeth, get rid of discoloration, and fix gaps between the front teeth, bonding is a highly esthetic alternative. To match the color and transparency of your natural teeth, there are many different colors of material available. Although bonding is a conservative short-term therapeutic option, dental bonding that we utilize lasts much longer, giving you long-lasting results.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

During the dental bonding process, your tooth is softly etched and then a bonding liquid is used to get it ready for the procedure. Your expert applies a natural tooth-colored plastic resin when the liquid has dried and shapes it into the appropriate form. After the resin has dried, it is polished, smoothed, and cut for a more natural look. In many cases, the bonding process will be finished in only one visit to our Los Feliz clinic.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last For?

Dental bonding may endure for three to five years before needing to be repaired if it was broken, chipped or discoloured in any way. That said, if you take good care of your teeth by brushing and flossing as well as attending your regular cleanings, you should have no issues prolonging the longevity of the dental bondings.

Dental Bonding Benefits

Dental bondings are able to benefit patients by:

  • Closely matching to the color of your teeth,
  • Fashioned to resemble the missing portion of a chipped tooth,
  • Used to fill gaps between teeth,
  • Used to help restore a fractured tooth to its original size,
  • Cover a stained tooth to make it more similar to the color of your natural teeth.

Dental bonding has both restorative and cosmetic uses as well which include:

  • Fix tooth damage or decay,
  • Fills up tooth voids,
  • Corrects stained teeth,
  • Alters the form of teeth,
