Want to change your smile? At Young Street Dental, our dentists can use bonding treatment to alter your teeth.
Why would I get bonding?
Often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to alter the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to help match it to the surrounding teeth.
How does the bonding procedure work?
During the bonding procedure, a resin is applied to the tooth using a high-intensity light.
Once the resin is applied, the bonded resin is sculpted to your teeth and polished.
The bonding procedure takes about 30 - 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
When bonding is used?
- Fill cavities and restore decayed teeth
- Address discoloration and change a tooth’s shape
- Repair chips or cracks and close gaps between teeth
- Help protect the tooth root from exposure from a receding gum line.
