815 Dental Studio
Dental bonding is the simple application of a composite resin to the surface of a tooth to visually change it. It is an easy, inexpensive and non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can be finished in just one visit. If you have a discolored, chipped, cracked, or decayed tooth there are a couple of solutions to choose from. Dental bonding could be the perfect option for you to regain your self-esteem and self-confidence with a restored healthy smile.

Dental bonding is a common and popular treatment option if you have undesirable gaps between your teeth, cracked teeth, chips in your teeth, decaying teeth, or even if you have roots that are exposed. The bonding compound is a composite resin material that is strong, and can be shaped, and molded to look and feel like your natural teeth. It is not a restorative appliance like a dental bridge or dental implant, but instead is a material that is sculpted to restore the look and the function of your teeth easily.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are several benefits to having a dental bonding treatment. It will immediately improve and restore the look of your teeth and your smile. This is beneficial if you have dealt with cracked or chipped teeth and are anxious to get them repaired. Another benefit is that the dental bonding will functionally strengthen the tooth. When a tooth is cracked, it is susceptible to bacteria, infection, and further damage.
Another huge benefit is that it is quick and has immediate results. Dental bonding treatments can be completed with just one appointment with 815 Dental Studio, which means you will enjoy your restored healthy smile immediately. The dental bonding can be touched up at any future dental visits if the bonding is showing wear, or even if it needs to be replaced.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
First, the expert team at 815 Dental Studio will use a shade guide to determine the correct shade of resin that will match the natural color of your teeth. Before applying the bonding material, the surface of the tooth is slightly roughened and then lightly coated with a conditioning liquid to ensure the bonding material will adhere to the enamel. After this brief prep, the tooth is ready, and our creative team will apply the putty-like resin to the tooth and sculpt, shape, and mold it until it is in the desired natural shape. Then the material is hardened with an ultraviolet light. After the resin is set, we will finish any perfecting touches, such as minor additional shaping and the polishing of the newly bonded tooth.
It only takes between 30 minutes to an hour for our skilled team to complete a dental bonding procedure. If you are having several teeth treated, it might take a few visits to complete. Since dental bonding procedures seldom require any local anesthesia, you can return to your normal daily activities upon completion.
Dental Bonding versus Veneers
Dental bonding is successful in the use of simple cosmetic improvements that do not have an impact on the function of your teeth or gums. Chips, cracks, gaps, or staining are the most common cosmetic issues that dental bonding will correct. Dental bonding differs from veneers because the veneers are created in a dental lab and are made of layered glass ceramics. The veneer is designed to both look and feel like your natural tooth, and it adheres to the front of your tooth with a dental cement.

The Life Expectancy of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is usually not a permanent restoration, but it can still last quite some time. If cared for properly at home, and if you visit 815 Dental Studio every six months for regular preventative exams and touch-ups, dental bonding can last for quite some time.
Exercising proper care of your teeth will also extend the life of a bonded tooth. Suggestions include:
- Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily, both with the proper techniques.
- Avoid coffee, tea, colas, berries, and tobacco for several days after your treatment to avoid stains.
- Avoiding biting hard food, candy, and ice.
- Do not bite your fingernails or chew on pencils.
- Do not use your teeth as tools to open things.
- Schedule your regular exams and dental cleanings every six months.
Call us if you by accident break or chip the bonding material, or if you feel any irregular edges of the bonded tooth. If you have severely damaged teeth, your dental bonding might need to be replaced with a permanent restoration later.
