Dental bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.

Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin to a tooth to repair damage from decay, being broken or chipped, severely discolored. Dental bonding is essential for improving the look and feel of a patient’s smile. It is ideal for people of all ages and is specifically done to correct imperfections that would otherwise take a lot of work to repair. We here at Ramona Dental Group can provide you with the latest bonding technology to ensure that you are satisfied with the way that your smile looks.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding uses a composite resin to fill in cracks, fill gaps and blend into chipped teeth that look unsightly or take away from the fullness and beauty of your smile. The procedure is incredibly noninvasive, since little to no anesthesia is required to have it done. Because of this, dental bonding is an ideal solution for many patients who want a procedure that is long-lasting and can completely transform their smile within about an hour.

Who is a Good Candidate for Bonding?

Before having bonding done, our doctors will perform an examination to determine if you are a viable candidate for the procedure. In most cases, you’re a good candidate for bonding if:

  • You have spaces between your teeth or large gaps
  • You have a chipped tooth
  • You have a broken or fractured tooth that hasn’t affected the inner pulp
  • You have hairline cracks (craze lines) that cause the teeth to look unsightly

Bonding is customized to each patient and the composite resin is carefully shaped to your unique smile. The bonding material is also matched to your existing teeth, providing you with a seamless smile that stands out and covers imperfections that you’ve had for years. Be sure to consider this procedure when you’re looking for an alternative to more invasive options.
