Dental bonding can quickly, and affordably, correct a number of smile imperfections. Not all of them require major intervention, and bonding is the perfect solution for these, but there are some conditions that are best served by other treatments. So it's important to discuss with your dentist your expectations so you can both can decide if dental bonding is right for you. To learn more get in contact with your local Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA, cosmetic dentists Dr. Timothy Bui and Dr. Caden Lim.

How Dental Bonding Works

The material used in dental bonding is commonly known as composite resin, as it combines a mixture of either glass or quartz with a resin medium to create the tooth-colored substance used to repair your teeth.

Your dentist applies it in layers over the tooth, using a special light to harden it and to bond it to the enamel. Layer upon layer is then built up in this way. Once there is enough, the tooth is reshaped and polished to match your natural teeth.

What Dental Bonding Can Do

The treatment is not as durable as other cosmetic dentistry procedures but it can still last many years with proper care. Some like to use dental bonding as a temporary solution, but on its own, it can address many problems.

Problems like damaged teeth, whether the damage was incurred by trauma, decay, or wear, or in treating teeth lacking length.

Slight spacing problems can also be fixed by treating the two adjacent teeth with dental bonding, thus minimizing the gap.
