What is Dental Bonding?

Dental Bonding is a relatively quick and painless procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin to correct chips, cracks, and gaps in your teeth. In order to do this, your dentist will apply the resin to the area that needs to be corrected, and using a special light, causes the resin to harden and “bond” with your tooth. Our experienced dentists at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry have been performing dental bonding procedures in the Greensboro and Archdale area for years, so you can trust your smile in our hands.

Dental Bonding is a common option for many tooth imperfections, including:

  • Decayed Teeth
  • Tooth Chips or Cracks
  • Discoloration
  • Noticeable Gaps and Spaces
  • Short, Misshapen Teeth
  • Exposed Roots
  • Receding Gums

What To Expect During
The Bonding Procedure

The entire dental bonding process is very quick, usually only taking 30 – 60 minutes per tooth. Most patients can get the corrections done all in one visit, however, this depends on how many teeth need to be bonded. Unlike veneers and crowns, dental bonding can be completed at the office with your dentist, and doesn’t need any castings, molds, or lengthy customizations to be completed. Also, since it’s a very quick and painless procedure, anesthesia is usually not needed. Once the bonding process is complete, you can be off to enjoy your new, perfect smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is dental bonding painful?

No, dental bonding is a quick and painless procedure that usually takes under an hour for each tooth. The affected area in which the tooth is bonded is not sensitive so anesthesia is typically not needed. Our Triad dentists have years of dental bonding experience so you can rest assured that your procedure will go as smoothly and comfortably as possible.

How long does dental bonding take?

Most patients can complete the entire dental bonding process in a single visit, usually taking 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. However, the procedure may take longer depending on how many teeth need to be bonded. It doesn’t require castings, molds, or customizations so once the bonding process is complete, you’ll be ready to show off your new beautiful smile

Is dental bonding permanent?

No, bonding is not a permanent solution to correct imperfections. However, our dental bonding material is designed to last for at least 10 years with good oral hygiene. Caring for your teeth after a bonding treatment is as easy as taking care of your natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly, and schedule bi-annual dental check-ups with one of our Triad dentists. This will help maintain healthy teeth, gums, and long-lasting bonding.

Does dental bonding break easily?

Dental bonding uses a strong, tooth-colored resin that hardens and bonds with your tooth using a special light. It corrects a number of dental imperfections and protects your teeth from further damage. However, if you suffer from bruxism, it is possible to chip, crack, or break the bonding material on the tooth. If you know that you clench or grind your teeth, we recommend getting fitted for a protective mouthpiece to prevent damaging your teeth.
